100 Days, 100 Cranes

August 8, 2016 0 comments

The 100 Days Project is a very simple venture. For 100 days commit to one creative task and repeat it each day.

Each year a group of dedicated volunteers put in a lot of effort to get this creativity marathon off the ground. This year, the project begins on the 24th August and is open to anyone in the world to take part.

Even if you don’t think you are creatively inclined you can still give it a go! The project exercises your ability to think creatively and there aren’t any cons to that. Why not further your passion as a designer, writer or photographer? Or, just use it as an excuse to exercise some discipline and explore learning a new skill?

This year, I am taking on my own 100 Day Project. In Japan, the crane is referred to as “the bird of happiness” and it is said to live for 1000 years. They have a strong belief that folding 1000 paper cranes in one year, one to represent each year of its life, makes a wish come true.

As it is August and I am not sure of my origami skills just yet, I will begin with one tenth of this challenge. So every day for 100 days I will fold an origami paper crane. No matter where I am at the time! I already know this will mean folding cranes in different spots around Berlin, Norway and Italy!

So follow me on Instagram to see each day unfold, and see my project page here.
