Children and adults alike are invited to come along and make a drawing to contribute to the museum's display, showing the world how drawing changes lives beyond art.

Rachel Terry, Museum & Collections Officer, said: "This is a fantastic way for people to get involved in this global event.

"Be inspired by the Craven collections and come along to invent your own machine, design your own fossil or create your own patterns! We'll be exploring science, technology, engineering and maths through art for a truly STEAM powered event!
