The Weekly Challenge

Weekly Challenge, 9th July – #2018


It’s time for our monthly Angel of the North creative challenge. Set by Gateshead Council’s Culture team, we are celebrating #Angel20 and this month want to highlight something a little different, something hidden, something you might not already know about the Angel. Are you intrigued? Well, brace yourself… There’s actually a time capsule buried underneath the Angel!? Who knew? Well now we do know, let’s have fun with it.


What would you put in a time capsule? Create a physical or photographic collage. Consider what items you would include from 2018 to show what life is like now so we can look back at it in the future. It could be a photograph, something you like to wear, listen to, read…even a hobby you enjoy! It could also be something you think embodies 2018 – a new development, a new trend, a new idea. Don’t hold back!


If you have more time … 
Invite a friend or family member to do a capsule too then compare your items. Did you have anything similar? Did anything surprise you? What do you think may be missing?


How did it feel to think about 2018? Did you find it hard to choose your items or did they immediately jump out to you? What do you think future people will think of your items and 2018? What year would you want people to discover it?


Show us your time capsule contents! We’d love to know what you’d hide away for the future. Share with us and with the team at Gateshead Council on Twitter and Facebook. You can tag #64MillionArtists and #Angel20 and share with us on:
