Announcing Make 100: A nudge to get creating in 2017

Share this post

The new year is the perfect time to dial it up to 100% — to resolve to be happier, more generous, and more creative, too. That’s why we’re launching Make 100, a creative initiative focused on editions of 100. As 2017 kicks off, we challenge you to bring your brightest idea to life, x100.

Being part of Make 100 is simple: launch a Kickstarter project this January featuring a limited-edition reward capped at 100 backers. You could make a run of 100 zines, or release 100 tickets to a performance — as long as your project follows Kickstarter’s rules, the possibilities are 100% endless. And while you don’t need to make it all the way to 100 backers to be a successful part of Make 100, you do need to reach your funding goal, so be sure to make a plan before you share your limited-edition project with the world.

We’re kicking off Make 100 today and there are already some great live projects: 

  • Hope Nicholson and the Prairie Comics Festival are making 100 zines featuring creators from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, Canada.
  • Dave and Calvin Laituri are making 100 spinning tops designed to make everyday decision-making more fun.
  • Sean Bonner is making 100 photobooks of his street photography from Tokyo and Shibuya, Japan.
  • Thomas Negovan is making 100 print featuring a rare, mystical work by Alphonse Mucha.
  • Mike Ambs is releasing 100 LPs of the 52-hertz whale's lonely song on vinyl.
  • Shing Yin Khor is making 100 divination boards featuring a space-influenced fortune-telling system. 
  • Spike C. Trotman is making 100 enamel pins of the burlesque dancer mascot for Iron Circus Comics' most successful line of books.
  • See everything else that’s live right over here.

Throughout January, we’re looking forward to projects from many more artists and creators, including Jeremy Bailey, Archie Lee Coates IV, Marc DaCosta, Matty Davis, Jenn de la Vega, Surya Mattu, Jenny Odell, Sarah Rothberg, Thornwillow Press, Che-Wei Wang, Marina Zurkow — and maybe you, too?

Whether you thrive under creative constraints, or you’ve been waiting for a sign from the universe to finally start a project, consider this your nudge to get creating. We’ll be celebrating Make 100 projects on, on Happening, in our newsletters, and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter all month long.
