“Amongst the best was Andrew Boyd’s compendium-like Beautiful Trouble which brought together some of the most imaginative elements of a movement influenced by a mix of non-violent direct action and the public drama of situationism.”Mark Perryman, The Substantive
Three of the leading creative action organizations in the country – Beautiful Trouble, The YesLab/YesMen, and the Center for Artistic Activism – are joining forces for a special weekend of trainings for orgs, networks, and activists.
We will be conducting a 2-day intensive training at NYU and delving deep into Beautiful Trouble’s creative toolbox. Also, the YesLab/YesMen will be unveiling their powerful new action development tool, the Action Switchboard. (Those present will be among the first to be trained in how to use it).
Anchored by NYC front-line organizer Sam Corbin, world-class trainer Nadine Bloch, troublemaker (& BT Training Director) Gan Golan, master prankster Andy Bichlbaum, and the dynamic artist/activist duo Steve Lambert & Steve Duncombe (along with many other amazing folks in the room), it’s going to be an exciting weekend where we learn how to up our collective game.
Also, with a goodly number of at-large activists and NYU students attending and looking to join projects, it could be a good moment to form new alliances and recruit new blood.
Our application for this training is now closed. We will be announcing selected applicants on February 1st. Thank you so much for the great show of interest, it won’t be long before we are back with another training opportunity! Get on the waiting list for the next training!
All at-large individual participants (except NYU students) will be expected to make a donation in order to help cover costs. All organizations around which the training will be anchored will be charged a sliding scale fee, based on ability to pay. To determine your cost of attendance, LOOK HERE.
Please note that applying does not guarantee you a spot. We will begin notifying applicants if your application has accepted starting February 1st.
