In June 2020, we launched our FIRST project ‘Thunk-It Thoughts’; A five day prompt project to engage people in small moments of creativity within their day-to-day life.
At the start of each day the we posted a creative prompt to our social media, and encouraged followers to respond to the prompt in any creative way.
The prompts that were posted were; “Rosie Red Cheeks”,
“Sunset Over The Rooftops”,
“Dry Yellow Rain Mack”,
“Leaves Dancing In The Wind”, “Look Up To The Bright Blue Sky”
and “Stop Can You Smell The Lavender?”.
These prompts were created to engage different emotions but also be open enough that they could be perceived in many varied ways.
We had hoped to be sent at least 5 responses to this project, and we were incredibly pleased to see that we had 37 over the five days! These responses included many different art forms including; poetry, makeup looks, songs, videos, photography, collages, drawings, among others.
In the midst of the first lockdown we thought it was incredibly important for people to have something to engage with and to feel a part of something. This project was such a success for us, as it was obvious that it had engaged people and involved them in something creative and fun.
