100 days a journey
The 100 day project phenomenon has been popping up around the globe for years. The premise 'do something creative every day for 100 days' really resonated with me when I found myself in a creative rut five years ago. However, I knew right away that I would struggle to complete it solely on my own, most people tend to undertake the challenge individually.
I started to think about the things I would need and like to complete the project....things like a framework to work around, milestones to work towards, support and accountability from others and an incentive to finish a reward at the end!
100 Days a Journey has come directly from those thoughts and the experiences I and 60 other participants (so far) have had over the past five years. I have always made a point of participating and make sure my co-mentor does too. At the end of each journey we then spend time reflecting and consequently refining the program so it offers the best experience possible for future participants. And, as proof of its value, participants often sign up for another Journey!
At one end of the scale, 100 Days a Journey enables artists to explore and challenge aspects of their existing art practice and at the other, it remains as simple as prioritising daily creative moments. You get to choose, it's your Journey!
I truly believe in this program and there are way too many benefits to list here. So why don't you get in touch with me at email@example.com to discuss what your Journey may look like and in the meantime enjoy looking through the galleries below.

“I would recommend it to anyone who knows they have something to say or get out there but is stumped with how to begin to do it. It’s just the right amount of time to build up the bravery, figure out your process and absorb the bits that didn’t quite work out as originally planned."
Judith Le Harivel, 2020
"The 100 Days Journey gives me the incentive and permission to take time out to do something that I don't normally do – in this instance making time to experiment."
Deidree Hutchins, 2022
“The level of personal learning and growth has exceeded my expectations. The rewards have outweighed the challenges. Working alongside fellow artists and sharing their journeys has also been a humbling and valuable experience.”
