Summer Weekly Challenge

  • Summer Weekly Challenge

Each week we'll release a challenge: an opportunity to showcase your creativity at home. We'll post the challenge here on this page, as well as on Facebook and Instagram.

Then all you interested participants will create your own response (artwork, video, etc.) to the challenge.

We'll be gathering these creative contributions and sharing them with the world in a weekly video.
