A Month of Creativity

Each year, 64 Million Artists hosts a national campaign of creativity – The January Challenge!

Every day in the longest month we set a short creative challenge. It only takes 5 or 10 minutes to complete, it’s free and any materials you need should be easy to find. You never know what to expect!

In 2018 the campaign was bigger than ever. We witnessed a massive outpouring of creativity across the UK and beyond. Take a peek in The January Challenge gallery to see what our challengers shared. If you’d like to take part in next year’s January Challenge you can already sign up. Otherwise, why not have a go at this year’s challenges in your own time. We dare you! 😉


Read The January Challenge 2018 Report to enjoy more information about the reach of the campaign, learn interesting insights and stats and see what our Challengers thought. You can also discover how we’d like to improve next year.
