"The Color of Science" is the catanese stage of The Big Draw Festival, the biggest drawing party in the world, which will take place during the European Researchers' Night, as part of the Metro of Science event, organised at the Giovanni station XXIII of the Catania underground.

The theme of our appointment will be to put science and its protagonists in graphic form, to promote design and science as universal languages ​​capable of changing lives and bringing together people of all ages, origins, races or religions of the world.

Suitable for anyone who loves to draw and even those who believe they can not do it, children and adults: all you have to do is give space to your imagination!

From 16 onwards and throughout the night, you will attend mini-conferences, science shows, exhibitions ... and you will have, thanks to the sponsorship of Fabriano, paper suitable for different techniques: for pencils, pastels, watercolors, acrylics ... to put in graphic form the emotions that these events and their protagonists will have communicated to you. We will also let you find some colors but if you are an expert artist and you want to be sure to find the ones that best suit your favorite technique, we suggest you bring them from home.

The best graphics in the three categories

- small artists, under 12 years of age;

- students of schools and high schools with artistic backgrounds and Fine Arts academies;

- general public aged over 12 years

they will be rewarded with a small souvenir of this magical night between art and science.

A session dedicated to disabled children and teens will also be organized upon request.

And for those who do not want to venture alone, do not worry: there will also be a sheet of 10 meters, for a gigantic shared design, to do all together!
