The 50 Irons Project

3 Irons is excited to present a bold new project called "50 Irons." For 365 days starting April 1st, 2017 we will be engaging with other passionate arts and culture leaders to complete a series of 50 collaborative projects. At the end of the project, we will publish a book about the experience. By so doing, we seek to release our own creative powers, give support and energy to the many talented minds in our community, and capitalize on this unique period of rapid growth and political unrest in our society. Most importantly, we have a deeply held belief that through art, life becomes more rich and enjoyable and society learns to find common ground to engage in cultural dialogue. We hope that you will join us in this fun adventure.

About 3 Irons

3 Irons was started as a "two person creativity support group" in early 2016 by two friends, Joy Haynes and Steven Labrum who were seeking to exercise their creative muscles by doing small tasks such as writing, visual arts, or consuming live art performance. The idea for the name "3 Irons" came from the concept of always having 'irons in the fire'. Three at a time seemed like a reasonable amount to be working on. A tipping point was reached at the Sundance Film Festival in 2017 where they attended 27 films together and for an "iron" conducted a series of interviews and posted them on Twitter (@3IronsSLC). As the successive projects continued to grow in scope, and the enjoyment also escalated, a crazy idea was hatched: The 50 Irons Project.
