Launched by the Guild of St George in 2000, The Big Draw became an independent arts education charity in June 2006. The Big Draw's continued development is made possible by the support of many organisations and individuals who share its vision. Without them and the commitment of hundreds of venues across the UK and beyond, our mission would be unachievable.

The Big Draw has grown immeasurably thanks to the funders listed below and to thousands of event organisers who believe in the power of drawing.
