We know that this is a very difficult time for the whole world and we want to do our bit to relieve your boredom as we all face spending far more time at home that we could have imagined just a short time ago.

Why the Happiness Project? We know things are bad for people everywhere in the World and we want to bring a little happiness to people.

After all our Venture family has 21 years of being creative, making fun things happen in our studios and generally spreading joy for the families we have created lovely photography and wall art for. We thought that we could help everyone out by pooling the skills across our very talented team of photographers, digital artists and staff and we’ve put together some ideas that we think will help individuals as well as families with children of all ages not only occupied but come out of this time with great photography skills learned from the best photographers in the business.

We’ve got a whole raft of activities, tasks and competitions that you can easily do at home. We want you to get creative with Venture, try our series of 7 day challenges and we will have lots of photo competitions coming up for all ages. You can do all of them or some of them, dip in and out, whatever suits you. The main thing is we want to share our skills to help your creativity and wellbeing and spread a little bit of happiness to you all.



Have fun and try something new creative activities for all ages

We've put together links to lots of great creative ideas to save you from searching around. There's something for every member of the family to do together or alone. Have fun!
