The Drawing Factory

The Drawing Factory

“For the past two years we have been filing our drawings. We have hundreds of them.

“Beautiful drawings, ugly drawings, tender drawings, failed drawings, sexy drawings, sexual drawings, drawings that are slightly annoying, drawings that we have fallen in love with, drawings that we despise, drawings that make us feel sad and drawings that are joyful.

“We have made them collaboratively over lunch, over a day or over weeks of sending them back and forth in the post.

“We invite you to explore our collection, exhibited for the first time in the UK at Madame Lillie’s Gallery in Stoke Newington.”

The Drawing Factory is five artists connected by drawing:

Uma Mahadeva

Support us

The coronavirus outbreak meant that the Hackney Citizen was unable to print a monthly newspaper for three months.

We're grateful that we have since been able to resume printing. This would not have been possible without the generosity of our readers, whose donations kept the paper from disappearing completely at a distressing time for residents.

A huge thank you to everyone who gave their time and money to support us through the lockdown, and to those who continue to do so as we slowly recover from the dramatic fall in advertising revenues, on top of the existing challenges threatening the future of local journalism.

A one-off donation or a regular contribution from anyone who can afford it will help our small team keep the newspaper in print and the website running in the coming months and years.

Find out how you can donate.

Thank you for your support, and stay safe.
