2017 theme Self Organized

From the Situationists to the Yes Men, activists and artists have been constructing elaborate pranks, impersonations and culture jamming hacks for years. These interventions often generate way more media attention than regular NGO campaign activities and create moments of critical debate, forcing responses from key actors. These tactics have however had very little uptake in our sector even though there are many opportunities. In this workshop Gloria Spindle from the Peng! Collective, the group behind the interventions Call A Spy, Intelexit, Zero Trollerance and Google Nest, will lead us through a fun and practical exercise to imagine and design some interventions. No handbrake-colleagues, no keeping the funders happy and no fears of being provocative allowed!
