Who would you be if you did something “unchained” everyday for 30 days? Hmmm… we think you’d be lighter, brighter and oooooozing creative confidence. But, that’s just our opinion – let’s find out together…

Starting this Thursday, January 10th (the day this organization was born), everyday for 30 days, we’ll share excerpts of our most popular interviews with female artists across the African diaspora here on www.liveunchained.com. Each day we’ll give you an “Unchained Challenge” inspired by the featured artist’s creative journey: We call it “30 Days Unchained/#30unchained.” This isn’t just a challenge, it’s also an interactive countdown to the unmissable Live Unchained Anniversary Celebration on Friday, February 8th. You can get your ticket now at: www.liveunchained.eventbrite.com.

So, what is this all about?

What really makes 30 Days Unchained/#30unchained a fun challenge is that you’ll be using your right brain. We’re asking you to think in images, not just words, by responding to the challenge with photos or images you create, find or remix. For example, when we interviewed Issa Rae of “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl” she told us: “Creating this series from the awkward black girl’s point of view was important to me because that voice just isn’t represented in anything I see on TV or film right now. I wanted to see a character that I personally identified with on screen…” So, for the challenge of the day for this interview, we might ask you: “What would you like to see mainstream media offer more of to you?” Your task is not just to tell us, but to show us. Like Issa, do you want to see more awkward black girls? Then, as we said, create, find or remix an image that reflects your response and share it with us on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.

How do you participate?

We broke it down into 4 easy steps. Starting this THURSDAY, JANUARY 10th:

1. Visit www.liveunchained.com to meet the Live Unchained featured artist of the day. Read the short interview, look for the daily challenge at the bottom of the post and let the inspiration sink in.

2. Respond to the challenge, not just with words, but by creating, finding or remixing a photo or image.

3. Share your visual with us on Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter. You MUST TAG Live Unchained and use the hashtag #30unchained. Be sure to TAG @liveunchained in all your posts on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter and use the hashtag #30unchained. (It’s so important, we wanted to repeat it.)

4. Make sure you’re following Live Unchained on the following platforms so you can keep up with the latest updates about 30 Days Unchained/#30unchained and see images by other participants:

www.facebook.com/iliveunchained  .  www.twitter.com/liveunchained   .  www.pinterest.com/liveunchained

What are the perks?

1. We’ll be sharing our favorite images on all of our social media outlets – so this will be a great way to share your imagination with like-minded creatives and get feedback.

2. We’ll give a special shout-out to our favorite image-makers by putting their images on display on the big screen at the Live Unchained Anniversary Celebration on Friday, February 8th.

3. In honor of the “Terrifying, Strange and Beautiful” campaign we’re launching in partnership with Warsan Shire at the Live Unchained Anniversary Celebration, we’ll award 3 of our favorite image-makers a “Terrifying, Strange and Beautiful package.” This set includes exclusives you won’t get anywhere else including a “Terrifying, Strange and Beautiful” poster designed by talented graphic designer Shari Neal, chic “Terrifying, Strange and Beautiful” t-shirt by Michelle of Creat.Ture Fashion Studio and copy of Shire’s book, “Teaching My Mother to Give Birth.”

What are the contest requirements?

To be eligible for prizes, you must be following Live Unchained on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. You must also purchase a ticket to the Live Unchained Anniversary celebration. You can receive an additional $5 off any ticket level price as a “30 Days Unchained” participant using the promo code: 30unchained.

Any other questions? Email us at 411@liveunchained.com.

We’ll be ready with your first challenge on Thursday, January 10th. For now, feel free to spread the word and share the promo video and art with anyone you’d like to see really get off the chain for 2013…

      Lucky you, with these numbered comments. How I wish we could do that with bl&r1eg!Io#82g7;ve never heard of this author, but you’ve convinced me I need to at least find the Boo series and start reading. This book sounds like a riot! I’d love a chance to win but if not, that’s OK – I’ve already put her name on my book wish list.
