Fun-A-Day is a month-long festival of daily delights. The concept is simple: Commit to doing one fun thing a day and do it. Then, at the end of the month, tell everyone what you did.
February can be harsh in New York. This year, make sure you have something creative, frivolous, or adventurous to look forward to every day. You can do whatever you want. Take pictures. Try a new spice. Teach yourself origami. Break dance.
Here’s what you do: Sign up with your project now, start it on February 1, and then, at the end of the month, bring something to the Fun-A-Day show. If you make something (arts, crafts, sauerkraut), bring that to the show. If your idea of fun is more experiential (competitive archery, noise concerts, dumpster diving) bring some documentation. There will be space to hang you presentations and slots for your live performances.
Fun-A-Day started in 2004 in Philadelphia as a way for the Artclash Collective to motivate their friends to make things through the winter. Now in its eighth year, Fun-A-Day has grown to include independent shows organized across the country. This is the third Fun-A-Day in New York.
