Drawing Projects UK is a non-profit centre for research, development, production and promotion of exhibitions, events and workshops in drawing and contemporary art.

Drawing Projects UK provides a space for drawing – where you can see, make and discuss drawing - and aims to promote, develop and build a community through drawing in a local, regional, national and international context.

Formed in 2009 by Professor Anita Taylor to develop and promote research initiatives in drawing, including the Jerwood Drawing Prize, the new centre opened at Bridge House in Trowbridge in 2015.

Built in 1929, Bridge House is a landmark building adjacent to Trowbridge railway station. It houses the Drawing Projects UK office, The Drawing Centre project space and training room, meeting rooms, workspaces for artists, designers, makers and creative, cultural and educational enterprises and Studio Café.

Programmes include exhibitions, drawing sessions, projects, workshops, talks and events and we can provide professional development services for artists, curators and arts organisations.
