Vid of Campaign for Drawing’s Big Draw Event at Nantwich Museum 2013

Past, Present and Future met up for Nantwich Museum’s 2013 contribution to the nationwide Campaign for Drawing’s, Big Draw event, where families drew on the theme of The Museum of the Future. The idea being that fast-forward a few years, a futuristic holographic device might be installed to pull in bits and bobs (and people!?) from any place and time. With dramatic costumed characters from ancient Rome, the English Civil War and from a ‘distant galaxy’ on hand, there were one or two scary moments as people came face to face with reps from the ‘Imperial Guard’ (and Chris and John). But for sure everyone had a great time, proving once again that the pencil is mightier than the sword. This little vid (by Nantwich-based artist, Nicholas Ferenczy, with music by Baseline People) tells the story of the day and showcases some of the lovely drawings made – many by local children.
