The Travelling Sketchbook Exhibition is an extension of The Sketchbook Project. Following the Sketchbook Exhibition displayed at the State Library of Western Australia during National Youth Week, the sketchbooks embark on a tour across Western Australian rural and suburban libraries, for the rest of the State and regional participants to enjoy.

In 2017, we received over 100 sketchbooks from participants all across WA, each as wonderful and  unique as the other. Some are lighthearted and funny, others are deeply personal, and we had some really creative interpretations in the mix too.

This year’s Travelling Sketchbook Exhibition itinerary encompasses libraries from Busselton to Northam, Derby to Katanning, and Esperance to Port Hedland.

The Travelling Sketchbook Exhibition is presented by Propel Youth Arts WA and is proudly supported by the State Library of Western Australia.
