About 30/30

30works30days, is a month long project for artists where they are required to submit a new piece of work daily, every day for the month of April. If you fail to submit something on one of the days, you are out of the project.

30/30 is to encourage making and experimentation, testing what you think you know about your practice. With the restriction of one day you may find that the choices you make, the corners you cut and those ideas that you couldn’t quite realise, are just as telling as the work that you produce. Be as lazy or ambitious, as devious or honest as you like, remember it is your choice and ultimately your representation of the concerns within your practice.


The project is open to everyone and any medium is encouraged. In2019 over 200 artists of all ages are participating from 20+ countries around the world!

You can see works being submitted everyday throughout April on the live feed at thirty.works (below) and by following #30works30days
