The Weekly Challenge

The Weekly Challenge, 22nd February 2021 – I’ve Got You Under My Skin

This week’s challenge is from our friends at All Change! Based in North London since 1985, All Change brings artists and communities together to produce original and authentic arts experiences, which develop understanding and make connections between people.

Known in Your Bones, is an arts and heritage project from All Change, exploring the all-powerful influence of Vitamin D – the ’Sunshine Vitamin’ – in our lives.

Beginning from the 2020 Winter Solstice, and running up until the Summer Solstice in June 2021, monthly creative prompts are released to invite audiences to contribute to the project, to help us explore the stories and impact of Vitamin D. Find more about the ‘Known in your Bones’ project here.

Let’s join in and get creative with the Known In Your Bones February prompt!

Do

‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’
Create a photo, or write a line or two to tell us who or what gets under your skin? 

When something ‘gets under your skin’, it could mean an unexpected positive affect someone or something has on you, or it could be growing to like or dislike something.

A top tip to get started might be to write a quick list of all of the things on your mind right now. Choose one or two things from that list that you know you’ve been thinking about a-lot recently. What about that thing has got ‘under your skin’?’

Use this week’s challenge to get creative and express yourself…
“I’ve got the memory of summer under my skin!” 

 

An photo collage of various images of hands, some handprints, some images of hands touching, some close up images of palms, so you can see all the details in the skin.

If you have more time…

Create another photo or line!
Is there more than one thing that gets under your skin?

Think

What do you know about the relationship between our skin and the sun?

Did you know? Our skin is a complex and dynamic organ which has evolved to both protect us from and to use harsh ultraviolet rays emitted from the sun, to build strong bones. Find out more about our skin and Vitamin D here!
