Night of 1000 Drawings is a one night exhibition made possible by everyone out there who has donated A5 drawings, which sell to the public for R100. All proceeds go to charity. All are welcome to donate drawings to make a difference, from novice to pro. Draw, photograph, embroider anything as long as it's A5 format.  For more information about contributing go to the How to #GiveADoodle tab
It is South Africa’s Biggest, One Night Only, Inner-City Art Exhibition and Sale to raise funds for a deserving cause – This year's main recipient is Streetlight Schools (  If we double what we made last year – we’ll add another charity!!

TICKETS are R100 and doors open at 18h00
Buyers will be spoilt for choice with doodles, scribbles, graffiti, sketches, watercolour and oil paintings, experimental and conceptual works, all on sale and going for a song.

The Joziburg Lane is part of the Number One Eloff development.  It cannot be missed as it is a massively, bright yellow and blue building, located at the corner of Eloff and Wemmer Jubilee Streets on the southern edge of the Johannesburg CBD (near the M2 highway)
Number One Eloff is easily reachable from the M2 highway from either way by taking the Rissik Street off-ramp into town. Once in Rissik Street, turn right into Albert and right into Eloff. To get to the parking drive down Eloff and turn left at the traffic light into Wemmer Jubilee Street. Now turn left at the gate at the end of the yellow-and-blue building. Drive up the lane and the ramp to the rooftop parking.
For GPS purposes: 2 Eloff Street, Salisbury Claims, Johannesburg CBD.
PARKING IS FREE BUT LIMITED TO 150 cars so we suggest using UBER or taxis!
Getting back home is as easy as you can access the highway in both directions from the adjacent Eloff Street onramp.
One Eloff is a short walk away from Gandhi Square where the municipal buses stop and within reach of Absa campus where the Gautrain bus stops. It is also within walking distance of Park Station, simply walking down Eloff Street in a southerly direction.
Rea Vaya buses stop at Library Gardens and Carlton Centre from where it is an easy walk to Gandhi Square and down Eloff Street to One Eloff.
