What is a postcard? What memories do they hold? This year, Art Hoppers invite you to open tiny windows into your personal journey’s by drawing declarations of happiness ready for the post! Postcards are as much for the postman as they are for those closest to us – A ‘wish you were here’ for all to see. If a postcard inspires the memory of a happy place in miniature, perhaps re-imagining the stories and pictures that go with it are a way of connecting with our happiest and most creatives selves at large.

Join us to celebrate communication and the playful visualising of landmark moments in our lives. Paint pictures, design stamps, write messages. We’ll be tipping our caps to World Post Day (9 Oct) in gratitude of the global system, which launches our intimate stories and helps conversations take flight around the world.

Vote for ‘Postcards From a Happy Place’! If you like the sound of our event or enjoyed taking part in it, please vote for us to win THE BIG DRAW FESTIVAL 2019 – PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD. Thank you in advance!
