Hello First name / Friend,,
We're a week in! Today it's over to the young people at Rotherham United Community Sports Trust (RUSCT).

"The RUCST Youth & Inclusion department works with the diverse and vibrant communities of Rotherham with the overall goal to make Rotherham a more inclusive, cohesive and safer society. We love the idea of bringing a variety of young people from different backgrounds and communities together. What an amazing opportunity." Rotherham United Community Sports Trust

The challenge you’ll find today came to life when 64 Million Artists visited RUCST to run a creative workshop with their Youth Forum. Pictured below is the workshop in action - in a community room young people are sat around tables in groups, taking part in creative challenges and designing some themselves.

Spend a few minutes collecting 'found things' around you. 
You might find leaves, books, laundry, recycling or the washing up. What do your found things remind you of, or make you think about?
Create an image using the objects as your art materials!
Welsh Translation: 
Treulia ychydig funudau'n casglu 'pethau rwyt ti wedi eu ffindio' o'th gwmpas. Gallet ddod o hyd i ddail, llyfrau, dillad, pethau i'w hailgylchu neu lestri'n disgwyl eu golchi. O beth mae'r eitemau'n dy atgoffa, neu'n gwneud i ti feddwl amdano? 
Crea ddarlun gan ddefnyddio'r pethau yna fel dy ddefnyddiau celf!

Did your found things evoke any emotions or memories?

  • Sharing the challenges with your community group or workplace  and creating responses together
  • Creating a WhatsApp group with friends or family to share responses

  • 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,
