Drawing the Giant Dolls' House
Giant Dolls' House Project with UAL Chelsea, first year interior design students,
Doodle Bar
Sat 30 Sep 12 - 5pm
Come and draw a dolls' house in a shoebox. The Giant Dolls’ House project is an ongoing collaborative arts project that engages local communities and has raised money for the Housing and Homelessness Charity Shelter. The 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.

The 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.
