First BT Training Network HangOut, with the (sur)real Black Body Survival Guide

Contributed by on


The first BT TN HangOut, Live!, feat. the (sur)real Black Body Survival Guide took place Wed Aug 5th at 5 pm PT// 8pm EST.

This launched a BTTN LIVE! series showcasing the latest and greatest in creative action news from around the globe; & offer a platform for BT Trainers and allies to share current work and relay network info.

For our inaugural call, we were joined by Terry Marshall of Intelligent Mischief – a co-conspirator behind the (sur)real Black Body Survival Guide in the 21st century.

The Black Body Survival Guide is a multi-media compilation of satirical tips, tricks, and tools created in response to the current moment in the history of violence against black people. It is a survival book, survival tools, performance art, a survival online tv show and social media campaign carefully co-created in consultation with black people of all backgrounds.

Intelligent Mischief is a group of Afro-Caribbean sci-fi, afro-futurist, comedians, arts, dance and theater nerds running a civic engagement hack lab based in Boston. They use culture, social media, and technology to explore social justice issues and campaigns in creative and thought-provoking ways.
