We just did a workshop with our friends at Action skills, and gathered up some great case studies and examples for creative activism – from stunts, hoaxes, and political satire to graffiti, guerrilla projections and fooling Nazi’s – we are on a mission to get more grassroots activists thinking outside the box.
First off – follow us on facebook as we regularly post great examples, and also check out our youtube playlist – quite a great collection of our favourite videos are there.
- This is one of our all time favourite stunts – a small town played a great trick on Nazi’s that come to town every year to preach hate.
- Learn from the best… the Yes Men, and Reverend Billy
- Know your history – with Buga Up
- Did you know that civil disobedience has a patron saint/animal – it is Brenda the civil disobedience penguin… First Dog on the Moon is one of our favourite political satirists
- Get artistic, with Liberate Tate
- Beautiful Trouble, and the more recent Beautiful Rising is the best!
- Project your issues onto people… or more importantly, places, with EvoLens
- Learn about delivering a parking ticket to a warship or one of Australia’s biggest hoaxes
- Best Greenpeace stunts
- Best fossil fuel divestment stunts
What is yours? Let us know and we will add to the list…
