Night of a 1000 Drawings

Night of a 1000 Drawings is an empowerment project that culminates in a one-night-only, massive inner-city art sale to raise funds for a deserving cause.


South Africa’s biggest, one night only, inner-city art exhibition and sale to raise funds for education!

Buyers will be spoilt for choice with doodles, scribbles, graffiti, sketches, watercolour and oil paintings, experimental and conceptual works, all on sale and going for a song.

At R100 a piece, you could get your hands on a one-of-a-kind, original work by tomorrow’s big stars, or something beautiful to make you smile.

The collaborative venue for this year’s event is the Joziburg Lane, situated in the heart of Johannesburg, filled with beauty, history and depth – just as the event intends for the wonderful thousands of donated drawings.

On Thursday, 10 November, Johannesburg will once again be wowed by the wonderful participation of artists from all walks of life who have kindly donated an A5 sketch / drawing / photograph / mixed art piece to the cause of Night Of A 1000 Drawings.

The art pieces are sold to the public at a fixed price of R100.00, and all proceeds will go to The Streetlight Schools Project, which is a non-profit initiative aimed at creating affordable primary schools through improved teaching practices, access to technology, cost-effectiveness and modern skill development and the first school is set to start in January of 2017.
