The January Challenge – Blow the Monday Blues away

We have an exciting opportunity to bring some cheer and creativity into the dark Winter months!

The Culture Mile Business Improvement District are partnering with social enterprise 64 Million Artists to deliver The January Challenge – a month of quick, fun and accessible creative prompts throughout January.

Everyone is creative, and The January Challenge is an opportunity for you to tap into that creativity, explore new ideas and start something new. There is a broad evidence base to prove that creativity supports our well-being, enabling people to face challenges in different ways, solve problems, bring people together and create opportunities for play and joy.

Get involved with The January Challenge within the Culture Mile BID in early 2024:

  • Sign up to The January Challenge and receive a free creative prompt in your email inbox every day throughout  the month.

What can you expect? 31 days of fun, quick and free creative prompts to kickstart the year. In 2023, over 50,000 people took part and 85% of 1000 people surveyed said that it had a positive impact on their wellbeing.

Each creative prompt is designed by different people and communities across the UK, and is a celebration of creativity in all of its forms. There’s something for everyone – including you! Explore the prompts on your own, with family, friends – or, use them to inspire creative meetings or conversations at work.
