If you give damn. Do something good. Give back. Give a little bit of yourself. Give a bit of your time. Show that you give a hoot. Hey, show that you give two hoots. Prove that you that you give a rat’s @$$. That you give a flying duck. Read on to find out more about Night of 1000 Drawings: How to Host a Doodle-Do.

How to Doodle-Do
- Firstly start getting super excited! You’re about to Doodle Do a lot of good for a great cause.
- Take that excitement and visualise your “do”.
- It is all in the detail:
- Venue – Let the space inspire the art. Host on a rooftop orin your office parking lot late at night, on your school tennis court, in the back of a 10-ton truck that’s attached to 20 hot air balloons flying over Braamfontein…
- Music – Liven up the mood. Have a DJ, an iPod battle, a live band, a church choir singing hip hop.
- Food – Have people bring their own, get some food trucks in or just order a ton of pizzas. Feed those starving artists.
- Who will you invite? Think about your attendees – is it open or private – is it for the staff at your office or for your close friends or for everyone?
- Choose a date.
- Choose a time.
- Choose a theme.
- Create a poster – design your own unique poster for the doodle-do.
- If it’s an open Doodle-Do, post it on Facebook. Share with 1000Drawings team www.facebook.com/1000drawings. We’ll help get the word out.
- All Doodle-Do’s must have doodle supplies: Lots of A5 paper, pens, pencils, paints, crayons etc.
- Where to drop your works of art when you’re done? Find a drop off point here: http://johannesburg.1000drawings.org.
