This week we are focusing on the beauty of the everyday – the bird that has just flown past your window, the leaves that are crunching beneath your feet, the person on the red bicycle. Together with Hull Public Health we would like you to:
Take notice of your surroundings and share a photograph of something that makes you feel happy this week. Happiness means different things to everyone – try not to overthink it and just see where the week takes you.
If you have more time …
Pass your happiness on – tell someone about what made you feel happy today, and invite them to share their experiences of happiness. Sometimes we all just need to be asked, or prompted in order to take notice of the everyday. Perhaps share your photograph online and invite others to do the same – before long, you could have an entire album of wonderful image that you may not have noticed before.
Did your perception of happiness change after doing this task? Were you surprised at what you noticed today? Did your mood change after taking notice of your surroundings?
Send us your images and perhaps a short description of where you were when you took it. Don’t forget to tag #64MillionArtists and #ChallengeHull and share with us:
If you haven’t already, join our Facebook group to connect with other challengers.
This year we are working in collaboration with Hull 2017, UK City of Culture to deliver transformative cultural activity and celebrate everyday creativity in 2017.
