At Quentin Blake Centre we believe illustration is a vital tool for sharing stories. Over the past year, we’ve been partnering four illustrators and four local organisations to co-develop creative projects . The process created engaging and inclusive spaces for people of all ages to explore illustration via a wider range of mediums and through different collective journeys.

Meet the team and the collaborations below:
