Create to Connect - Day 20! Kristina Veasey (http://www.kristinaveasey.com/) is a visual artist who likes to flip negatives into positives, and find beauty in the mundane. Today’s challenge is inspired by Kristina’s installation exploring housework, where she uses repeating images of mess and dirt to print vibrant patterns on wallpaper and furniture (see the wallpaper below in Kristina's video instructions below!) Take a photograph of something in your home from a new angle. Make your mess beautiful! Zoom in close, or find a perspective that makes it look abstract or different. Can you get a closer view of the cobwebs on the skirting? Or see the patterns made by the dishes in the sink? Take notice of your surroundings and find the beauty in the mess...

Young Norfolk Arts Trust provides opportunities for children and young people to create and engage with creativity and culture across Norfolk. Their work is all about collaboration and now more than ever they want to create opportunities to connect and work together. This challenge is to get creative in with someone else – either with someone in your household, or virtually with somebody else. Start to create something, and ask somebody else to finish it – online or in your home. Together, you are going to create something new. You could make a poem or story by writing one line each, you could make a random squiggle and ask them to turn it into something, or you could even ask them to edit your photograph. You might like to choose a them for a drawing (it could a view, a person, an object) and draw half each. If you’re doing this virtually you could pick a theme, each draw half an image, then take photos and put them side by side. How will you get creative in collaboration…? Let's #CreateToConnect!

Today’s challenge is from the Synergy Theatre Project, who work across theatre and the criminal justice system towards the rehabilitation and resettlement of prisoners, ex-prisoners and young people at risk of offending. Can you write a short conversation between two people who have been in the same space together for a long time? Perhaps the people are experiencing self-isolation together, or they might know each other from prison. Perhaps they are on a voyage into space, their car has broken down or they have got lost. What do we learn from their conversation? How does their situation impact their relationship, or what they might be saying?

Draw a shape in the middle of the head, where the brain might be. It can be any shape that you like. Break that shape up into sections, some bigger and some smaller. Fill these sections with whatever is taking up your brain space right now. Your biggest section might be used for your biggest thoughts, whilst smaller sections could be filled with passing whims or feelings. #CreateToConnect #64MillionArtists #MakingYourMindUp Create to Connect - Day 14!
