So much FUN has been had during the Fun-a-Day event in the last few years, that we have decided to have some more in 2015! The countdown is on, with just 4 days left of 2014 before the clock strikes midnight. So now is the time to start thinking about the creative fun you might get up to this January.
31 Days of Fun
It is simple to join Fun-a-Day Dundee 2015. Start by picking a project (take a photograph, write a poem, draw a picture, bake a cake, collect an object, plant a flower, hug a person) that you can do every day in January 2015. You can complete your project anywhere you like (in Dundee, in Hawaii, in your shed, at your desk, on the street), but your project should be recorded or created in a way that allows you to share it with us. Then if you would like to, you can bring it to show in an exhibition in February – we’ll confirm the details for this in January. You can take a look at some of FUN had last year, read about the FUN exhibition and about some of our FUN makers to get started.
Everyone is welcome
Everyone is welcome to join Fun-a-Day Dundee. You can be an artist, a baker, a drummer, a doodler, a designer, a gardener, a photographer… We would encourage you to invite all of your friends to join the fun, or to help you make your fun happen. It is free to participate in Fun a Day Dundee and it is free to attend the exhibition.
Definition of fun
What you think of as being fun will probably be quite different to many people, but that’s ok. The common definition for fun is a pleasant, enjoyable and light hearted activity! I can’t wait to see what people come up with in this daily quest for fun making and how you all interpret fun… Here is a definition of Fun by Spongebob!
Find time for fun
It probably won’t be possible for your Fun-a-Day project to consume your whole day. But it should be possible to find one element in your day that is fun, or to find the time in your day to create a little bit of fun. Think of it as a creative experiment. Invest as much or as little time as you have. But do try to do it everyday. We can guarantee that you will be happy to see how 31 little actions can come together to create something much bigger.
Start the fun
The most important thing is to just get started! You can find ideas and take a look at previous Fun-a-Day shows and projects on Artclash. Remember to let us know that you are taking part by dropping us an email at FunADayDundee@gmail.com or signing up on Eventbrite by the 12 January.
