Night of a 1000 Drawings to get its Dubai debut

November 17, 2009

The global doodling phenomenon Night of a 1000 Drawings is coming to Dubai for the first time, aided by Flip Media, TBWA\RAAD and Tonic Communications.

The agencies are working in tandem with the creative collective LEGION DXB for the art exhibition and one night event, to be held on November 24th from 7.00pm, at Art Sawa Gallery in the Al Quoz area of Dubai.

The event will see 1000 A5-sized original drawings by established artists and members of the public, auctioned off to benefit the charity Gulf for Good. Proceeds will then be distributed to the Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund towards medical equipment.

The evening will also feature live drawing ‘Doodle Showdowns’ and sets by UAE bands Juliana Down, Sandwash and The Recipe.

Senior members of each agency have contributed to the available artworks, with Yousef Tuqan Tuqan, CEO of Flip Media, commenting: Flip Media is proud to be associated with Night of a 1000 Drawings Dubai. It’s a wonderful initiative by our creative industry to give something back to our community.”

The hugely succesful doodling evenings that have contributed to artworks, were held at a variety of venues including art spaces The Jam Jar and The Fridge.
