I am very excited to be part of this book, “Beautiful Trouble.” It arrives in February. Order your advanced copy today! Here is some more info:
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. Until now.
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.
Beautiful Trouble puts the accumulated wisdom of decades of creative protest into the hands of the next generation of change-makers.
