Hello First name / Friend,,
Today we’re getting hands on with this challenge from the Wales Arts Health and Well-being Network.
The Wales Arts Health and Well-being Network (WAHWN) is a rapidly expanding network of colleagues delivering arts and health work in Wales. Pictured below is WAHWN in action, a younger and older person sit side by side taking part in an exercise class, alongside a photo of, WAHWN Associate Ceri John Phillips during our Zoom workshop where their challenges came to life. It’s also Ceri’s voice you hear if you are listening to the Welsh voice recordings of the challenges!

This year, we are so pleased that The January Challenge is fully available in the Welsh Language, thanks to support from the Arts Council of Wales. This includes The Champions Pack - a free resource which includes all 31 challenges - for people who want to use The January Challenge to engage with the groups around them at work or in their local community.

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,
