Where Did All the Animals Go?

An Exhibition of North East School Children’s Drawings
Working with Artist, Jane Lee McCracken 
20 June – 22 July 2019, Thought Foundation Art Gallery, Birtley 
 

Jane worked with over 400 children across the North East to deliver Biro drawing workshops for the exhibition which features Biro drawings of some of the world's most endangered species. Both exhibition and the Endangered Species Conference, 22 June 2019 12 - 5pm, also organised by Jane and Thought Foundation are supported by international wildlife charity Born Free with Will Travers OBE, President and Co-Founder of Born Free Foundation as headline speaker at the conference. Included in the exhibition is a selection of Jane’s Biro drawings, which explore loss to the environment, generated by human destruction. 

"Jane's enthusiasm is infectious and her talent prodigious. Her love of wildlife and her ability to communicate that love to young artists, encouraging them to explore new subjects and new mediums, was there for all to see when I had the privilege of attending the 'Where did all the animals go?’ exhibition on the 22nd June. I am full of admiration for her work and for her passion to inspire the next generation to care about the natural world around us."

Will Travers OBE, President Born Free
