Big Draw – Wonderland

Artwork inspired by the Illuminating York Festival and York Art Gallery

September – November 2012


Magnetic Arts, in partnership with York Art Gallery, held a series of six closed sessions for people referred to us by various mental health and supported housing agencies in York and Selby.

Participants explored the theme adopted by this years Illuminating York festival in the city ‘Wonderland’. The starting point was many usually unseen works on paper held in the gallery collection and chosen by the YMT staff. This was followed by five drop-in days for the public, resulting in some wonderful work by participants of all ages.
