GIMP and Photoshop both allow the user to create slides one-by-one and then animate and save as an animated GIF. Much like a post-it book flipped through.

The easier way to say it is frame animation. I would go with GIMP. Photoshop costs lots of money.

Is anyone actually up for anything that doesn't require simple writing and drawing?

As said earlier, I can submit an entry for every categorical subject you mentioned.

A bit of storytelling, design, editing, animating, cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc.

I'm not going to propose anything 'unreasonable' like printmaking, sculpting, composing, dancing, surgery, flying, conquering, etc.

It depends. How hard and long would the project take?

Laundry isn't that hard. Takes no more than 2 hours.
Cleaning is a bit more difficult and tediously time consuming.
Cooking is even harder but more time consuming including the prep work that needs to be done.
Animating is harder still and even more time consuming with its manual frame-by-frame process.
Editing is harder than that and takes up so much time looking over things multiple times you'll take breaks than lengthen the time it takes.
Design is nigh impossible and requires insight and inspiration which may take ages.
Storytelling is a skillful craft and takes generations upon generations. What you get in the end is an epochal story.

I could probably do some of the Animating in my class for that. And Laundry. I could do that.

To be serious, I don't know how long the entire Project will last. Projects usually don't last more than two months, but since this is a project of projects, it might last more than 6 months or more.

I'll probably start it soonish.

I'll join, but I don't think I will manage to do anything during early August. I probably just won't have much internet access.
