About The Big Green Draw Festival

In 2020, The Big Green Draw Festival #ClimateOfChange focuses on the relationship between people and our living environments and ecosystems; highlighting how we live today and the ways in which we do and do not harmonize with nature. The Big Green Draw is eager to help showcase mindsets and actions that proactively support positive symbiosis between people and the Earth. This is a great year to bring your community together, draw, explore, get out and about, kick start a new creative you, and be part of The World's Biggest community of drawing enthusiasts!

About Roots and Shoots

For the event, we are thrilled to partner with the Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots & Shoots program. Founded by Dr. Goodall in 1991, Roots & Shoots is a youth service program for young people of all ages, with a mission to foster respect and compassion for all living things, to promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs, and to inspire each individual to take action to make the world a better place for people, other animals, and the environment.

Help Us Continue Our Digital Efforts

Since opening over 10 years ago, we have sought to make the museum a place where our guests could find animation, innovation, and inspiration and immerse themselves in the remarkable life story of Walt Disney—the man who raised animation to an art, tirelessly pursued innovation, and created a distinctly American legacy, transforming the entertainment world.

Over the course of our current closure, we have increased our digital presence to stay true to our mission. Your donations ensure that we can continue opening our museum virtually to the world, and that future generations can continue to be inspired by Walt Disney’s life and legacy.
