Chance to win exclusive artwork at Pete McKee’s Pub Scrawl
17 January 2012
Sheffield art lovers are in with a chance of winning exclusive prizes at a special event this Friday and helping to support The Children’s Hospital at the same time.
Pete McKee’s Pub Scrawl on 20 January is supporting our Arts for Health Programme.
Limited edition flyers will be found in the ten participating venues on the night, which can be filled in for the chance to win one of ten exclusive prizes donated by Pub Scrawl artists including Pete McKee himself.
Cat Powell, our Arts for Health Coordinator, said: “We’re very excited to be part of the Pub Scrawl. The Arts for Health Programme prides itself on its collaborations with leading local artists.
“We actively commission many of the artists involved in the event, who give their time and skills generously to ensure our patients experience a rich and varied arts programme.
“Their art brightens up our walls, makes our children smile and helps ensure our patients can participate in creative workshops during their stay that alleviate and distract them from their illness.
“Going to hospital can often be an anxious time for a child and their family. We believe the arts through colour, imagery, music and poetry helps normalise the hospital experience for our young patients and promotes faster recovery.
“We hope people give generously where they see opportunities at the Pub Scrawl."
The Pub Scrawl, organised by Pete McKee, will showcase ten local artists in ten venues in one night. Nick Deakin, Lord Bunn, TADO, Geo Law, Sarah Abbott, Faunagraphic, Tom Newell, Fine and Dandy and Warp Films have also donated prizes to the charity competition.
The event runs as a pub crawl and the venues included are: The University Arms, The Harley, The Bath Hotel, The Bowery, The Washington, Forum, The Frog and Parrot, The Great Gatsby, Bungalows and Bears and Dada’s.
The artists will use their designated venue as a canvas, creating a unique art experience across the city. Find out more about the Pub Scrawl here.
