Hello First name / Friend,,
For Day Six, we’re back with the brilliant members of the Associates Programme at Arts & Homelessness International. The first cultural leadership programme in history for creatives who are or have been homeless. Meet the associates here.

The challenges you find by the Associates this month, came to life in a creative workshop with 64 Million Artists, including this glorious one…

Choose an object around you - any object, from a coffee cup to a pen. Perhaps it is your object from yesterday's challenge!
Take two minutes to glorify that object.
Write or speak your 'ode' to that object, like it's the greatest and best thing that you have ever known.
Welsh Translation: 
Dewis wrthrych o rywle o'th gwmpas, unrhyw wrthrych, megis mwg neu feiro. 
Cana glodydd y gwrthrych hwnnw am ddau funud. Llefara neu ysgrifenna dy 'awdl' i'r gwrthrych hwnnw, fel pe byddai hwnnw'r peth mwyaf a'r peth gorau i ti ei ganfod erioed.

Here is Mitchel, a member of the Associates Programme demonstrating the challenge with ‘Ode Coffee Cup'!

Did your ode make you appreciate your everyday object more or see it in a different light?

A note from 64 Million Artists: 
There is no wrong or right way to take part in The January Challenge. People take part in all sorts of ways! Here are some examples: 
  • Sharing the challenges with your community group or workplace  and creating responses together
  • Creating a WhatsApp group with friends or family to share responses
  • Sharing responses on social media in our friendly Facebook Group, or on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #TheJanuaryChallenge
  • Individually, keeping responses to yourself 
Anything goes. 
There is no pressure to complete the challenge everyday of the month, if simply reading the prompt brings new thoughts each day, or you create a physical response 31 days of the month, we encourage you to take part in a way that works best for you!

See you tomorrow,
