W16 Generating Creative Actions with the Yes Men

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This is a ticketed event.

In this workshop, the Yes Men will explain their methods for creating guerrilla media actions in the service of activist campaigns.

The workshop begins with a very brief overview and history of creative activism, followed by a few examples the Yes Men's contributions to the field. Then, led by the artists, the group will begin the process of generating ideas for new actions, and we form breakout groups to brainstorm ideas. Afterwards, we come together again and we focus on one or two of the project ideas generated by the groups, to create a recipe needed to bring that project to completion. We will also walk the groups through posting the project ideas on our new online platform for creative action, www.actionswitchboard.net.  In this workshop for ISEA, we pay special attention to the benefits and pitfalls of collaborating with activist organizations; a process that can make actions far more effective at achieving activist goals.
