The best way to learn about actions is by doing a web search. Two tools are currently in development:
- Actipedia: A joint project of the Center for Artistic Activism and the Yes Lab, the Actipedia will seek to be a comprehensive, user-generated, user-ranked, and searchable database of creative activist projects. It will include new material (activist self-reports) and will also link to numerous examples that have already been described elsewhere. Launching spring 2012.
- Beautiful Trouble: An Activism Design Database. A project of Agit-Pop and the Yes Lab, with dozens of collaborators (including the Yes Men), Beautiful Trouble will compile and disseminate tried and tested techniques to a wider range of practitioners via a shared database of case studies, principles, tactics, and theories. Launching in January 2012.
For nitty-gritty instructions on carrying out creative activist projects of various sorts, including Yes Men style projects, visit Destructables.org, a project by Packard Jennings.
We're also developing an action forum Yes Lab "sherpas" and others to trade tips. Launching spring 2012.
