A Perfect Day Tekenshow III, 2022
In September 2022, Stichting A Perfect Day organized the third edition of A Perfect Day Tekenshow at the NDSM in Amsterdam. With 58 (inter)national artists and around 600 pieces. This edition showed more diversity; especially the need among the artists to discuss the variety of personal and worldly topics. In addition, A Perfect Day Drawing Show offered a drawing program, three perfect nights with performances, a student night, a store and a bar.

A Perfect Day Tekenshow II, 2020
Eight years after the first edition - in March 2020 - we organized the second edition of A Perfect Day Drawing Show, at the Westergas in Amsterdam. We notice that this form of art - drawings with text and the individual view of everyday life - is growing and developing in diversity and topicality. From there, we saw the need and importance of showing it more often. A Perfect Day Tekenshow also consisted out of workshops, a program with performances, limited editions, and publications.
