The January Challenge 2020

For each of the 31 days in January, 64 Million Artists release a short, fun, creative challenge – and invite anybody and everybody to have a go. At 64 Million Artists we believe that everyone is creative, and that creativity can have a positive impact on our lives and the world around us. The January Challenge is a chance to activate and celebrate that creativity – to ‘do, think and share’ your way into the new year, and see what happens along the way.

2020 was the 6th time we’ve run The January Challenge, and this year over 30,000 people took part. Challenges took place in homes, hospitals, offices, care homes, schools and libraries, and engaged people from 5 years old to 85 years old. You can find the 31 challenges from this years campaign below.

Find here our impact report which explores the impact and reach of The January Challenge online and offline, and acts as an invitation to the reader to celebrate the potential in everyday creativity and creative participation. We want to contribute to the wider debate about participation in creative endeavours and the benefits that people observe for themselves when engaging with them.
