Drawn Together invited people in Wales to look at your surroundings and draw them.

Throughout 2018, Voluntary Arts Wales worked in partnership with Coast Lines to deliver a new participatory arts project across Wales.

Through an extensive series of drawing workshops with a range of different groups throughout Wales, Drawn Together encouraged participants to look closely at and document their surroundings in a series of communal sketchbooks.

Over 4,500 people of all ages and from every county of Wales, created over 5,500 drawings. 

The drawings were all displayed on the website www.drawntogether.wales and the project culminated in an exhibition in the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff in October 2018, which was seen by over 47,000 people.
