Lemn Sissay's Challenges

Day 17 – Finding Light

It’s the 17th January. Let’s find the light! Today’s challenge is from Elizabeth Blows.

“I’m 45, female from Edinburgh with a creative mind who loves colour and cherry blossom trees.

I’ve chosen this challenge because of colour! There’s a lack of it in January from the dark days and nights, so finding a cheerful colour moment changes the whole day and outlook.”

Celebrate the light today! You could choose anything from the sun rising to something that brightens your day.
Perhaps it’s something bright and colourful, perhaps it’s an act of kindness, or perhaps it’s the weather.

Capture the light however you like – in a drawing, poem, photograph or a conversation.
Feeling extra creative? Find all three of today’s challenges here!

What is your favourite colour and why?
