Brisbane's Big Draw

I was wandering around Queen Street today and outside one of the banks they have tacked up these big sheets of paper with people on hand with red and black pens. People were busy drawing and writing all over it. It turns out Brisbane City Council are running a program of activities called Big City Draw as a way of bringing people together through drawing and music (now that I think of it, I could hear some music). The initiative is part of Brisbane's 150th birthday celebrations which are going on throughout 2009. The activities also include colouring in magic carpets, designing the tree you would be and decorating totem poles with your own designed leaves and hearts. If you fancy expressing yourself, it goes from 11am-2pm daily until July 9th on Queen Street Mall.

What a good idea to bring people together! That young lad sure looks happy enough ... although there might have to be a lot of censoring occur.

This is such a brilliant idea. I'm all for encouraging this kind of event, only wish we could do likewise.

What a great photo and a great idea too. Perhaps if other cities and towns incorporated this, there might be less graffiti because people could express themselves.
