Have your Say #TheJanuaryChallenge

The January Challenge is 31 days of fun, quick and free creative prompts to kickstart the new year. 

In the 2021 programme we worked with three brilliant collaborators – Lemn Sissay, Jess Thom (aka Touretteshero) and Yomi Adegoke. Over 50,000 people took part and 96% of 1000 people surveyed said that it had a positive impact on their wellbeing. Find out more about the 2021 programme here.

This year, in the lead up to The January Challenge 2022 we are working with communities across the UK to create the campaign!

This is where you come in…

There will be lots of opportunities this year to get involved in how the programme is shaped, the first being a series of online creative networking groups – Have Your Say! 

Through activities and discussion, we’ll explore what creativity means to each of us – 

What drives our creativity or inspires us, who has changed our thinking and who we would like to inspire?

The conversations and connections made in these workshops will inform the next stage of the campaign – the communities, organisations and individuals that we work with and our approach to a co-designed programme. 

Contribute and participate in a national campaign. What collaborators would you like to take part with?

We have created networking groups for people that we are particularly interested in hearing from, and hope that they’ll be a welcoming space for everyone to connect and get creative. Please choose which workshop you would like to attend, and feel free to select more than one.
