We Does Draw is a non-profit group originating in Trinidad. Our growing organization is a meet up of young artists who link, think and sync up all in the name of art. The Facebook group “We Does Draw” has attracted approximately 330 professional, amateur and aspiring artists. The online platform provides a space where work can be shared and peer-critiqued. Through regular events, members are encouraged to meet face to face to exchange, create and collaborate.
The group has grown in leaps and bounds, gaining more attention and venturing into public structured environments, engaging in events such as The Trinidad Street Festival held in Woodbrook in April 2011. We Does Draw 9 was held in June 2011 on the corner of Maraval Road and Warner street in Newtown, Port of Spain and involved the creation of a “Juiceman” themed mural.
Our tenth event “We Does Draw 10: The Kids are all right” is carded for Saturday July 30, 2011, at “Shalom” the Activity centre at the St. Dominic’s Children’s Home in Belmont. A preliminary workshop was held on Monday June 25th at the venue to engage and warm the children up to the idea of partaking in mural creation. The response to the upcoming event has been overwhelming. We expect a turnout in excess of 60 artists accompanied by 50 children of the home.
Our goal is to create, educate and execute a facelift for this worthy cause. This is the first in a series of events we have conceptualized in line of our core principle of fostering a spirit of community goodwill through artistic talent.
