Get creative for 31 minutes a day each day this January

Challenge your creativity this winter with Create 31. Get creative for 31 minutes a day for 31 days this January with prompts on Create Waterloo’s social media.

Starting earlier this month, the City of Waterloo’s arts and culture team (Create Waterloo) launched a creativity campaign to get people creative for 31 minutes a day throughout January. At a time when most people are stuck at home and are limited on gathering, Create 31 aims to motivate and inspire around the home.

People participating in Create 31 can do so with any skill level. The challenge encourages people to flex their creative muscles and challenge themselves to practice creative habits all month long. Simply spend 31 minutes per day engaging in a prompt delivered by local artists, influencers, businesses, political representatives, and more. Create 31 will give you ways to stay creative and active as we continue to stay home due to Covid-19.

Creative challengers thus far have included Mayor Jaworsky and Amit from Good Co Productions, with more to come from locals like Ajoa from Four All Ice Cream and the band Onion Honey.

“[…] the Create 31 program encourages you to be creative for 31 minutes each day,” said Mayor Dave Jawosky as he kicked off the challenge on January 1 with the prompt ‘walk’. Mayor Jaworksy’s prompt encourages residents to get active in Waterloo by walking a path that spells out a word, and tracking their progress on their GPS.

Jump in and challenge your creativity. Prompts are posted each day on Create Waterloo’s Instagram @create_waterloo. You can go back and try the previous prompts or start today. See the full listing of prompts at and share your creations by using the hashtag #create31.
