What do you hear in #TheSoundOfSilence? #SevernTunnel #tinnitus #HeardAndNotSeen #64MillionArtists ‘Silence is not empty. If it were, we would not be able to hear it.’ This week, our very own Jo Hunter – CEO and co-founder of 64 Million Artists – is the special guest on Steve Chapman’s @stevexoh The Sound of Silence podcast. This is an experimental, downloadable podcast that records the silence that arises between 2 people. It is a conceptual art project by Steve Chapman that aims to disrupt what has become known as the attention extraction economy and societies addiction to constant distraction. Only 100 episodes will be recorded and the collected silence will then be turned into an interactive public exhibition. Find the podcast series at www.canscorpionssmoke.com - as well all sorts of news and updates on Steve’s other projects. This week’s creative challenge is inspired by the sound of silence. Find somewhere to be silent for two minutes – you might be at home, in a quiet corner of the office, a library, a café. What do you notice in the silence? Can you take a photo, or create a sketch that captures silence? #Silence #ArtPrompt #Photography #ArtChallenge #Podcast #SteveChapman #64MillionArtists #TheSoundOfSilence #Creative #artistsoninstagram The Weekly Challenge, 16th September 2019 - The Sound of Silence 'Silence is not empty.

We’ve also seen people celebrating their personal style, ability to keep up with friends and support their community. What makes you, you? What do you love about yourself? Let’s not be modest this week! #InMiOwnSkin #64MillionArtists #celebrateyou This week's creative challenge is to design a medal for the #greatnorthrun.

I'm so pleased to announce that I've been asked by 64 million artists to create a challenge for their audience and I have decided I'm all about out of self-esteem and confidence so I have created this challenge which is: This week’s challenge is set by Miacah, the founder of ‘In Mi Own Skin’ - helping people to look and feel great by bringing substance to style. Miacah helps people feel comfortable, confident and empowered regardless of shape, size or budget, and works to transform negative perceptions we might have of ourselves into positive mindsets and outlooks. Positive foot forward! This week’s challenge is all about being intentionally positive with our thoughts, and embracing what makes us all individual.  This is a three step challenge: 1: Write down all the good stuff that makes you, you. It can be anything from the way you love your hair, to the way you love your friends. Do you have a particular talent? Can you cook a great spag bol? Explore everything from your body shape to your personality. Get it all down - there are a million tiny things that make you a (fabulous) individual. 2: Collect these positive things and put them in a jar or box. Start every day this week by taking one of your positive thoughts out of the jar, and hold onto it. How does that thought affect your day? How could you express it in your actions? 3: Get creative! Use all of that positivity to create a mini masterpiece of individuality. You could create your own personal set of affirmations, a self portrait, a vision board. The choice is yours!

Walter Benjamin #internationalliteracyday #AWayWithWords #64millionartists and the book that reflects this is The Wanderer or in French Le Grande Meaulnes taking you to a place of enchantment memory and loss Here's a re post of something I did a few months ago, an example of text /lyrics translated to visuals as part of the current challenge by @64millionartists The song is 'The Devil and the Danube' by Holy Moly and the Crackers, as sung by @conrad__bird ️ If I find I'm being too precise, I like to pare it back a bit and do something quick and loose. This way definitely helps to discover new colour pairings, textures and new little worlds within the images to use in future creations. Building a library of visual reference if you will. #illgiveyoualltheworldhesaid #ificouldhaveyoursoul #devilandthedanube #holymolyandthecrackers #inspiredbymusic #morethanmusic #pencildrawing #joyoffelttips #graphitedrawing #red #64millionartists #instachallenge #ild Awesome challenge alert!!

The challenge is to bring one of your favourite quotes to life in a creative way, using whatever medium you prefer - though obv. we'd encourage you to draw/illustrate it! All the better if it's art or sketch-related! Full details Posted @withrepost • @64millionartists #InternationalLiteracyDay is celebrated annually on the 8th September. Since 1966, this has been an opportunity to highlight improvements in world literacy rates, and reflect on the world’s remaining literacy challenges. Despite progress made, literacy challenges persist, distributed unevenly across countries and populations. This week’s challenge aims to celebrate the joy in reading and writing, and engage in conversations about how to address challenges and achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Head to dothinkshare.com to find out more! Bring your favourite quote to life. Choose a quote from your favourite book, poem, song, rap, film and get creative! You could try your hand at calligraphy, capture the quote in a drawing or painting, get playful with wax resistant watercolor and crayons – you could even try and slip the quote into conversation. The theme of International Literacy Day 2019 will focus on ‘Literacy and Multilingualism’ – can you translate your quote, find a quote that celebrates language or that uses two or more? #InternationalLiteracyDay2019 #ILD #64MillionArtists #Literacy #Multilingualism #Reading #Writing #GlobalGoals #UnitedNations #Creativity #Cymraeg #PethauBychain @64M_Artists #64MillionArtists #InternationalLiteracyDay #internationalliteracyday2019 @GlobalGoalsUN #GlobalGoal4 #ThisIsWales #InternationalLiteracyDay2019 #64MillionArtists #InternationalLiteracyDay is celebrated annually on the 8th September.

Bad crop is bad but anyway here’s a sort of comic/sequential art thing I’ve been working on. Don’t ask me why she’s basically naked, I couldn’t work out what she should wear so I went for the easiest option: nothing Words are from Barricades by The Cat Empire. It’s basically “who hurt you?”: the song, and I think it’s just really lovely and relatable to a lot of people. I’ve got one last page planned atm but I wanted to post something now!

Over the weekend we popped into Tower Ballroom and it was fantastic to see people of all ages twirling around the floor. Old couples, young couples, kids dancing with their parents and grandparents. When I got home I made a collage to celebrate the fact that no matter how old or young you are, you can always enjoy the seaside.” Thanks for sharing, Challenger Caroline! #AllAgesAugust #64MillionArtists #Blackpool #Seaside #towerballroom #blackpooltowerballroom #collage #creative #intergenerational To celebrate the first ever #AllAgesAugust from @united4allages, this week's Challenge is to get together, to get creative.
