SWITCHBOOK is a collaborative sketchbook project bringing arts leaders from cultural, arts and educational organisations together working side-by-side with young ambassadors on a continuous sketchbook journey.

Participants are sharing skills to develop existing drawing, art and education practice through collaboration and peer support. 

SWITCHBOOK is supported throughout the year with practical workshops and events at cultural venues which bring participants together to network and take part in practical workshops to fuel the next stage.

A dedicated Facebook group creates an inspirational community platform for sharing ideas and outcomes, while exhibitions will share the project with wider audiences in venues across Somerset during the year.

SWITCHBOOK encourages networks, partnerships and relationships between educational, cultural and artist communities. The pilot will run until the end of October 2017, with a celebratory exhibition and conference in November 2017.
