INTEROCCUPY ARTS CALL: SPRING RESURGENCE!

A NEW SEASON OF RESISTANCE

Nationwide Conference Call |  Wed March 21 | 10pm EST/7PM PST  | Register Now


"You can crush the flowers, but you can't stop the Spring." 

 

The Spring Resurgence is finally here. Occupy Spring. American Spring. Global Spring. The Occupy Movement and it's allies have been hard at work the last few months, using the time to regroup, plan ahead, and lay the groundwork for a wave of new mass actions. 

 

We've been planting the seeds. Now it's time for them to bloom.


On this call we bring together a number of inspiring, large scale efforts that present incredible opportunities for artists of all kinds to get involved in. 

 


 

Nationwide Direct Action Training | The 99% Spring

 

Joy Cushman,  New Organizing Institute

 

April 9-15 we will gather across America, 100,000 strong, in homes, places of worship, campuses and the streets to train ourselves in non-violent action and join together in the work of reclaiming our country. History is calling; it’s time to step up.

 

 

 

 

The New Toolbox For Revolution | Beautiful Trouble 

 

David Mitchell,  Creative Direct Action specialist


Beautiful Trouble is both a new book and web toolbox that puts the accumulated wisdom of decades of creative protest strategies and tactics into one place, and directly into the hands of the next generation of activists, with contributions from over 70 artists, activists and organizers from Occupy and beyond.
