Shared on Instagram each Monday (@klockonian):
“Let’s make art together! I’m starting a little creativity project here on Instagram. I will share a prompt every Monday and invite everyone, first time artist to professional, to create something from the prompt in whichever medium is theirs. Could be a poem, a drawing, a dance, a song, etc. Use the space and materials available to you in your homes and send your pieces to my DM by end of day Friday. I will post your work with your Instagram handle on my feed or story on the weekend. Let’s keep each other inspired and creating during this time.”
6 choreographers, 6 phrases, 1 re-creation – learn the moves, make your own choreography and share your creation with the world. In short clips found on HDF’s YouTube channel, the choreographers explain movements or phrases of an existing piece to you. It is then up to you to create your own choreography with these tools. Choose your own order, combine movements or give your own twist to a phrase. Anything is possible!
Upload your video on YouTube with the title “HDF | Re-create + the title of your creation”. And fill in the form on the HDF website (www.holland-dance.com) with the title of your creation, the name(s) of the dancer(s) and the url to your video. HDF will then add your choreography to their special Re-creation playlist on YouTube.
From March through mid-August, London’s Saatchi Gallery is posted a new theme every week on its social media platforms and anyone could respond by sending their art, which, if chosen, was presented online. Participating art used the tag #SaatchiTakeover on Instagram. While this project has now concluded, you can revisit their past prompts for inspiration!
A weekly task curated by Jacob Jonas The Company, #ADigitalDance is a movement project encouraging creativity through digital platforms in response to the limitations of social distancing. The assignments are created by and directed by a group of cultural leaders that Jonas has partnered with a new weekly task every Monday.
This series concluded in July after 20 weeks of tasks, but you can find them archived on Instagram at @adigitaldance.
Detour Dance has launched “Jukebox”, a locker of creative prompts and responses that invites all sorts of creative minds to be a part of a digital play space.
“You can interact with Jukebox in whatever way or frequency that feels appropriate to you. You can revisit prompts several times or skip over any ones that don’t appeal to you. No timeline. No check-in. There’s just letting it exist. You define your relationship with it!”
The Iteration Project invites you to partake in a massive group project in the spirit of the ‘wrecking’ process developed by New York choreographer, Susan Rethorst. The idea is that you help create a large pool of source material from submissions to the prompt, 13 Ways to Say Hello, which is then made available for people to use however they like. Everything is welcome–drawings, videos, poetry readings, sound scores, etc. The more people that submit things and the more things you submit, the more stuff you have to work with. Spread the word, invite your friends.
The Iteration Project’s website also includes 50+ past prompts for art-making.
