New stretch target

Having cashflow will help; 

Support the project to keep it open and accessible to all, participants and audience alike, and to help keep the exhibitions as low-cost as possible for all involved.  

The development of a sustainable online creative resource; providing inspiration, skills development, creative workshops, podcast series, creative coaching, and an online platform for emerging creatives.

This will also allow me to develop the project to create points of engagement throughout the year, including shorter daily creativity projects.

I would love to be able to support participants in other ways such as helping those who want to sell their work through an online store, develop workshops to share their skills, to provide inspirational talks and interviews with participants, and other amazing creatives, to inspire, encourage, and empower. 

Work has already begun on a research and development project (through another funded scheme called Creative Bridge through Creative Informatics), but for this to develop, I cannot do it alone, and really do hope you can help.

If we smash the target? I hope to develop an offering for specific groups which could benefit from creative engagement, to build confidence and community. Such groups could include youth groups, community groups, schools, elder care and refugee support for example.

I am in discussion with creative coaches and art therapists, as well as youth workers and community groups, so with the time and support this additional funding would allow, I can develop this in earnest.

Empowering & Celebrating Creativity. Connection & Community. Mental Health & Wellbeing. 100 Days... 

This project aims to raise funding to support the annual celebratory show as it moves online in response to the pandemic; creating digital spaces to celebrate with and meet other community members; and to empower and engage people in daily creativity. 

To get digital tools and support for the participants in place, we are aiming for a target of £4000. The more we can raise, the better the we can support the current community, and widen participation by sharing the positive gains of the project with more and more people. 

My name is Isla Munro and I head up the '100 Days Project Scotland'; a project which gives anyone, regardless of age or ability, the framework and permission to get creative.  It challenges you to pick your creative outlet and relies on your willingness to work to achieve a creative boost. 

I have been building this project here in Scotland since 2017 and have loved sharing the many stories of how helpful the project is in developing peoples creative practice, or starting one; how supportive the community is; how many people enjoy the exhibitions; and how daily practice can help mental health. Now I hope to keep it going, make it even better, and support more people; to do this I need your help. 

1616021203_support_us.jpg

With your support the '100 Days Project Scotland' can continue to grow as an inclusive creative community; empowering people to get creative, encouraging, and broadening access to creative engagement, whilst ensuring I am able to continue the creative mentoring, community building, and project running role.

So, who am I? 

I am an Edinburgh based designer and educator, and a general keen-bean about all things creative. I have been working in the creative industries for almost 20 years, and have taught at Napier University and Edinburgh College of Art, where I am a Senior Teaching Fellow within the School of Design.

I believe in the power of creativity; for fun, for self-expression, as a catalyst for learning new skills, for improving our mental-health and wellbeing, and connecting with other likeminded people. All of these things are made possible through this project, which is why I love it so much. 1616024138_creative_conversations_isla_017-2.jpg

The Challenge

This past year, as a society, we have faced and still are facing unprecedented global challenges. There are so many amazing people taking care of us and helping keep each other safe; I am so very grateful. 

Creative practice is important to me for many reasons, but one is that it is very good for my mental health; and hearing the positive feedback from project participants over the last few years tells me I am not alone in this. 

The 2020 project took this to a whole new level seeing over 270 people sign up to take part, and I have heard so many wonderful stories of creativity, connection, community, and joy, that I want to build this project and allow more people access to those opportunities.

Why is funding important? 

It was a tough year, and I was frustrated to not able to find time, energy, or money as I had managed in previous years. Up until now, I have run the 100 Days Project Scotland as a passion project. However, it is hugely time-consuming, and with more and more people wanting to get involved (which is brilliant!) and increasing costs, websites, exhibitions and more, I’m hoping to make it more of a formal piece of work. To do this, I realised I would need to think differently this year (as so many of us are); exploring funding and ways to create time, space, and security to allow me to concentrate on this project.  Building a community, through shared daily creative practice, who encourage and inspire one another, is one of the most rewarding aspects of running this project which I am so passionate about. 

How it all started...

The '100 Days Project Scotland' started in 2018 after I took part in the New Zealand based '100 Days Project' the previous year. Emma Rogan started the NZ project in 2011 after reading about a class called ‘100 Days of Design’ – run by Michael Bierut at Yale School of Visual Arts, and over the 7 years she ran it, the project saw almost 5000 people take part.

1615593074_whats_it_all_about_-_blue.jpg

The project was so enjoyable, at times challenging, and I loved it.  I organised a show to celebrate the efforts of me and my fellow participants here in Edinburgh, the UK and Europe, and it was great fun; on 'Day 103' the Edinburgh show opened with 22 participants showing their work, to over 120 attendees on the opening night.

1616025194_images_2018.jpg

In 2018 Emma Rogan took a well-earned break and with her enthusiastic endorsement I decided to support the wonderful creative community right here in Scotland, and to empower and encourage those who don’t yet think of themselves as creative, by starting the '100 Days Project Scotland'.

Why Crowdfunding this year? 

Since 2017, the highlight of the project has been the 'Day 100 Show'; an exhibition which gives everyone the chance to show their work, but more importantly celebrate their efforts as a community; for some participants, this is their first public exhibition. 

We have seen participants of all ages and stages; ranging from 6 year old Erin who drew dragons everyday (read an interview with her here), my older sister Sheila, who made pictures using crisp-packet triangles and her felt-tips (having barely drawn before the project), to Jonathan Gibbs who has been a practicing artist and printmaker for over 40 years. 

The 2019 show was a roaring success and celebrated the work of almost 60 participants, and the opening night sold out! The exhibition, which could only run for 4 days, inspired even more people to get involved and in 2020 the project saw over 270 people sign-up to the project. 

Due to COVID-19 we were not able to hold the 2020 exhibition and first goal for this Crowdfunder is to get this exhibition online, throw an awesome opening-night event online, and celebrate all the brilliant efforts of those 2020 participants. 

1616025249_images_2019.jpg

Moving online and how community can help fight social isolation

2020 was a tough year for so many people. Many participants said that the '100 Days Project Scotland' was a great way of not only keeping creative but engaging with a community. I was already aware of the mental health gains for many of our previous years' participants, and hearing from 2020 participants only supported that further; with so many commenting on how the project was integral to their wellbeing, combatted feelings of isolation, and bolstered confidence

I supported the '100 Days Project Scotland' community as best I could, with a few Zoom meet-ups and through social media; but I want to do this better and offer more, which means I need to be able to develop a sustainable model. 

What does 2021 hold, and how will this Crowdfunding support that activity? 

This year, with your help, I will;

  • better support the existing community
  • widen the participation and grow the community
  • empower more people to get creative for the sheer joy of it
  • spotlight the work, talents, and achievements of our growing community
  • and celebrate the undeniable power of creativity to enhance our lives and the lives of others

I will be able to help people who want to get involved, but maybe don't know where to start by providing inspiring workshops and creative mentoring sessions. 

I will create more opportunities for meeting others from the community online, and in person when we are able to, by organising regular meet-ups. 

I will ensure that, as we bring the 2020 show online, there are no digital barriers and that I can support participants in getting their work digitised, provide skills development, and make the online opening night the best it can be.

With your support I will be able to cover the cost of the current website so it can remain online, and begin work on a website which will allow participants to share their work should they choose not to use social media (when Emma Rogan did this in New Zealand this cost around £10k. I am learning from Emma, who is generous with her experience, but specialists will need to be engaged).

What's the timeline?

This Crowdfunder launched on the 22nd March, and runs for 4 weeks. Once we hit our target (fingers crossed!) this will give us 4 weeks to get the 2020 show online prior to the opening night. 

The hope is that the online events surrounding the show, such as the opening night celebrations, 'meet the artist' sessions, panel discussions, talks, participant meetups, and creative mentoring sessions to get everyone inspired for 2021, will bring us up to the start of, and into the first half of, the 2021 project.

1616373806_timeline.jpg
