Beautiful Trouble: a Toolbox for Revolution
October 15, 2012
From Cairo to cyberspace, from Main Street to Wall Street, today’s social movements have a creative new edge that’s blurring the boundaries between artist and activist, hacker and dreamer. But the principles that make for successful creative action rarely get hashed out or written down.
Beautiful Trouble brings together ten grassroots groups and dozens of seasoned artists and activists from around the world to distill their best practices into a toolbox for creative action. Among the groups included are Agit-Pop/The Other 98%, The Yes Men/Yes Labs, Code Pink, SmartMeme, The Ruckus Society, Beyond the Choir, The Center for Artistic Activism, Waging Nonviolence, Alliance of Community Trainers and Nonviolence International.
Beautiful Trouble puts the accumulated wisdom of decades of creative protest into the hands of the next generation of change-makers.
Beautiful Trouble: a Toolbox for Revolution, assembled by Andrew Boyd ; with Dave Oswald Mitchell. New York : OR Books, c2012. 460 p. ISBN 9781935928577
