The Weekly Challenge

The Weekly Challenge, 10th May 2021 – CALM TAKEOVER – Silver Linings

The 10th – 16th of May marks Mental Health Awareness Week and the second instalment of The Weekly Challenge takeover with CALM – Campaign Against Living Miserably.

The upcoming challenges have been created by members of the CALM Art Collective!

The past year has brought new and challenging experiences. A way to keep hopeful that members of the CALM Art Collective have found useful, is to think about the little moments, experiences or conversions that they are grateful for – big, small and everything in between.

Let’s capture our “little golden moments of time.”



As we continue through Spring and adapt to the changes coming with it, take a moment to reflect on this past year. What are the things you have learnt about yourself, or others, that you will hold on to? What is your ‘silver lining’? 

Perhaps it’s a realisation or a hobby you have discovered. Or it could be a new perspective that you’re going to keep hold of as we continue to adapt throughout the year. This Mental Health Awareness Week the theme is ‘Nature’. Could your silver lining be a connection you have made with the natural world?

Represent your silver lining in any creative way you would like to!


If you have more time…

You could ask someone you know (or members of our Facebook group) what their silver lining is? Are there any similarities or differences? You could learn something new about each other!



How will your silver lining impact how you approach the future?



Share your work with friends and family or keep it for yourself!
