What Is the 100-Day Project? It’s a celebration of process that encourages everyone to participate in 100 days of making. The great surrender is the process; showing up day after day is the goal. For the 100-Day Project, it’s not about fetishizing finished products—it’s about the process.
How Can I Play? It’s simple. Follow these steps to participate:
  1. Sign up for #The100DayProject newsletter for important announcements prior to and throughout the project.
  2. Follow Elle Luna and The Great Discontent on Instagram for project announcements, updates, and highlights.
  3. Choose your action, which you will perform every day for 100 days starting on Monday, April 6th, and ending on Tuesday, July 14, 2015.
  4. Create an Instagram account if you don’t already have one (this is where you’ll share your photos).
  5. Select a unique hashtag for your project so all your instances of 100 can be viewed in one place. Include the hashtag with each of your posts (i.e. #100Daysof____ ).
  6. Announce your project on Instagram. Download an image and post it on Instagram, along with your project’s unique hashtag, to announce your project before April 6th.
  7. On April 6th, begin! Share each instance of 100 on Instagram and include your unique hashtag and the official projects hashtag, #The100DayProject, so everyone can follow along. (Note: If you find this after the 4/6 start date, you can still join in and catch up or finish later.)
What should I do for my project? We’ve put together a few questions to help you get started.
  1. What are you passionate about? Is there something you used to do that you gave up, something you’d like to explore, something that intrigues you?
  2. Pick an object or objects. What do you already have in your possession that could be used to facilitate this project? it could be as obvious as paint and paintbrushes, a camera, fabric and a sewing machine, or a musical instrument. Or it could be less obvious, like your great dance moves, paint chips, a wooden chair, or strangers.
  3. Consider your location. Will you be home, traveling, or a combination of both? Pick something that’s feasible for you to complete.
  4. Choose your action. What’s your verb? Here are a few to get you thinking:

    stand, speak, drive, study, drop, act, remove, repeat, examine, replace, introduce, perform, jump, pass, test, roll, kick, run, cook, thank, place, pick, save, throw, cover, shake, count, dance, break, walk, form, deliver, show, raise, reach, catch, sing, sort, develop, measure, discuss, draw, dress, write, meet, climb, take, look, climb, wish, shout, wash, decide
