Drawing the Giant Dolls' House
Giant Dolls' House Project
with UAL Chelsea, first year interior design students,
Come and draw a dolls' house in a shoebox.
Giant Dolls’ House project is an ongoing collaborative arts project that
engages local communities and has raised money for the Housing and Homelessness
goal of the project is to make people aware of the importance of a home and
community for all. In the Giant Dolls' House community there is place for all people and the
project shows how communities can grow.
Giant Dolls’ house project works as follows: Each participant (anyone: children,
parents, grandparents and students) in the project is asked to make an
individual dolls’ house room of any function in an empty shoebox. The boxes are
assembled onto a black canvas and linked with ramps, ropes and ladders to
create a series of connected spaces that form a community of dolls’ houses.
For the big draw event we encourage participants to use drawing and paper for their shoebox, but also to draw what they see on the wall and comment on the installation through drawing. The Giant Dolls' house project fits neatly into the Big Draw theme this year as it encourages participants to use a range of skills, that are all needed to inhabit a home and manage the environment. After all the home and its objects unites science, technology, the environment and math.
