Back to Nature

Name: Back to Nature

Location: Birmingham

Created by: Laura-Kate Draws

Sponsor: Accenture

Lockdown meant things slowed down and with less cars on the road, the environment was able to flourish, the air was cleaner, there were more birds in the trees, butterflies and bees in gardens. We were able to reconnect with nature, discover a love of gardening or foraging and found solace in a daily walk.

Laura-Kate Draws has been running her freelance illustration business since 2009 and empowering creativity, sharing skills and encouraging the use of our imagination is at the core of her creative practice. Laura-Kate has worked on a variety of professional briefs including illustrations for a published children’s book, and a number of large scale public art projects for Wild in Art. Other notable clients include The Royal Shakespeare Company, Library of Birmingham and Heart of Glass and National Museums Liverpool.

Accenture operates on the forefront of change, combining human ingenuity and technology to deliver new value for our people, clients, communities and the planet. They believe sustainability is the new digital. Just as the digital revolution transformed how we live and work, so too will sustainability, permeating everything we do and driving new value and growth for society and business. They are honoured to support Gratitude, a project that captures some of the extraordinary experiences that have connected us over the last two years and pays tribute to the key workers and NHS who, together, have carried us through the most challenging of times.
