We aim to stimulate, host and publish diverse perspectives on drawing and visualisation to/for a community of researchers, practitioners, educators and students. We advocate the value of drawing and visualisation in professional and educational contexts.
We encourage participation and collaboration.
Our aims are facilitated through three central activities: as host for the Drawing Research Network (DRN), as an open access online journal, and as a project space.
