About

Drawn Poorly is a Manchester based project. It’s aim is to provide arts opportunities to challenge stigma and encourage conversations about living with chronic illness, disability and mental illness.

The project is non for profit and supported by volunteers. In September 2018, Drawn Poorly was chosen for the Future Fires programme at Contact Theatre, providing development opportunities and funding.

Starting off as a quarterly zine, three issues have been produced focusing on subjects which affect us all including Identity, Relationships and Diagnosis. The zines are collaboratively created with a huge number of creatives contributing their work, allowing the project to be as multidimensional as living with conditions is.

Drawn Poorly is keen for access for all chronic conditions, disability and mental health conditions to be considered for everything.
