Different modes to Participate
One: you would like to plan your own event?
protest and dissent can manifest in many ways, we encourage people to
take some time (3 minutes, 3 hours, 3 days, 3 weeks, 3years, 3 decades,
etc...) and focus on voicing, evoking, communicating, elaborating,
directing dissent in a creative manner, using creative strategies, cultural
strategies. these activities are not meant to take away from the protests
we have all been participating in, instead they are meant to extend the
existing vocabulary and the possibilities.
Forums, Public Art works, Performances, Temporary Exhibitions,
Screenings, Panels, Discussions, Town Hall Meetings, Radio Broadcasts,
Recordings, Games, Web based projects, Virtual Sit-ins, Workshops, Posters,
Stickers, Billboards, Creative Protests
Two: you already have an event planned?
click here to post it.
Three: you do not know yet, you need more inspiration/examples?
take some time to think about it. you can invite your friends and have
some tea and talk about the issues involved in how you want to express
dissent in relation to the current politics. or borrow a video, a CD,
a book that can be an inspiration and a beginning to posing certain questions.
or go to some of the links we are providing and see how others are voicing
their dissent. you can also contact us and/or join the different groups.
once you know what you would like to do, click here.
In addition to creating or organizing projects, you can also
do the following:
a. Outreach -- If you know other individuals or groups who
may be interested, tell them about it. Part of this project is to further
build our networks, and work more together/separately.
b. Link -- Let us know
of other events or links that may be related so that we can add it
to our calendar.
We ask that these actions take place or are initiated within the period
between Friday, April 25, Saturday, April 26, and Sunday, April 27.
Also the time frame in which the festival came together was less than
three weeks. We see the time as a major factor in acting in time, on time,
with good timing, in more urgent times.
We also see the festival as a beginning not an end in itself. And that
we organize more together and these activities spread like a virus.
