Founded in 2011 the 100 Days Project is an annual event that runs (you guessed it!) for 100 consecutive days. The brainchild of this project (New Zealand graphic designer Emma Rogan) says, ‘In order to survive this 100 Day marathon you need to be disciplined, have creative flexibility and lots and lots of energy’. Other than two simple rules - choose one creative activity to repeat every day for 100 days, and record each daily effort – there is no skill pre-requisite, no age restriction, no fees and you can participate from anywhere in the world.
