30works30days is a month-long project where participants are required to submit a new piece of work, every day for the month of April. The project is open to everyone and any medium is encouraged. If you fail to submit something on one of the days, you are out of the project.
12ø began 30/30 in 2015 to encourage making and experimentation. 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.
Thirty.works was a live feed that showed everyone's works everyday throughout April. Each day different artists made a selection of the day's works which were then posted on Instagram. You can still see the daily artist selections by looking at our Instagram @12ocollective or by searching #30works30days
In 2021, 582 people of all ages participated from 30 countries around the world! Over the project 11,292 works were submitted on the website.
We organised three hour-long critiques/workshops/conversations over Zoom. Different artists facilitated these sessions with the aim to give participants a chance to check-in and talk to one another about the work they were making.
