The Weekly Challenge

Weekly Challenge, 28th May – #CitizensDo


Cardboard Citizens, the UK’s only homeless people’s professional theatre company, recently launched their new #CitizensDo campaign. Since March they’ve been collecting hundreds of audience ideas – ranging from addressing issues around stigma to offering spare rooms to homeless people – and have been sending people actions inspired by their ideas to take on each week. So for our creative challenge this week, we are inviting you to take part, to join the movement, to…


Illustrate and share the recipe for your favourite budget meal. You could draw a recipe card, take pictures of the real thing or even create a simple how-to video. Then, if you can, donate one of the ingredients to your local food bank. Find ways to donate food here. Let’s see what we can do when we get creative and join together to make a difference.


If you have more time … 
Sign up here to receive Cardboard Citizens’ emails over the following 2 months. The weekly action will come direct to your inbox or you can simply follow the movement on social media using #CitizensDo.



How did you feel before and after the challenge? What did you think about whilst choosing and illustrating your favourite budget meal? Did you learn anything new about your local food bank or those who visit it?


Share your recipe and/or food bank experience. If appropriate, take a photo and tag the food bank or location to raise awareness. You can share with Cardboard Citizens – TweetFacebook or Instagram them and hashtag #CitizensDo. Share with us using #64MillionArtists on:
