Axel Scheffler

Drawing Europe Together

Virtual venue: Oxfam Moot

The German-born illustrator, creator with Julia Donaldson of The Gruffalo, has brought together forty-five artists from across Europe to share their powerful illustrations of the European Union’s shared past and our unsure future. Scheffler’s acceptance speech at the British Book Awards last year was one of the most passionate and articulate hymns to Europe of recent years. He introduces the artworks, and talks about the project with Katya Adler.

Drawing Europe Together will be on show onsite at Hay Festival and you can buy limited edition prints from a selection of the 45 illustrators in the Hay Festival Shop.
