Dear Troublemakers,

We have exciting news — Beautiful Trouble has begun rolling out BRAND NEW CONTENT to expand and deepen our approach to the art and science of creative action. The first new chapter is Tactic: Light Brigade, which showcases how the national coalition Overpass Light Brigade bears witness to injustice with illuminated messages in public spaces.

Look for new modules to be published on our website regularly, and featured in custom-made graphics on our Facebook page and Twitter feed. Up next are more of the principles, theories, and tactics that underpin innovative organizing such as “The real action is your target’s reaction”, “Recapture the flag”, and the Brazilian case study “Pimp my cart”  from the recently released Portuguese version of BT, Bela Baderna.

Here’s hoping this evolving toolkit of revolutionary ideas can contribute to a 2014 full of, well, beautiful trouble!

Yours in trouble,

the Beautiful Trouble team
