How does it work?

At 64 Million Artists we believe everyone is creative, and when we use our creativity we can make positive change in our lives and the world around us. Every January, we release a different creative prompt on each day of the month. 

You can sign up to receive the challenge in a daily email or follow along on social media. You’ll find a fantastic community online using the hashtag #TheJanuaryChallenge on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. There, you’ll be able to see other people’s responses, and share your own.

All of the challenge ideas come from creative people around the country including musicians, chefs, comedians, sports stars, authors and…you!


In the 2021 programme we worked with three brilliant collaborators –Lemn SissayJess Thom (aka Touretteshero) and Yomi Adegoketo create and curate the programme from hundreds of your challenge ideas.

This Summer, we ran a series of creative workshops and for people to ‘Have Your Say’ on The January Challenge 2022. You can find out more about these workshops, and why we ran them, here.

Thanks to all the people who attended we’ve been able to design the new themes and ideas that make up The January Challenge 2022!
