A toolbox for the Revolution

Sidd Joag and I wrote a piece on Creative Safe Haven for this publication and web archive entitled Beautiful Trouble:

From Cairo to cyberspace, from Main Street to Wall Street, today’s social movements have a creative new edge. Social activism in the digital age is melding prank and PR; blurring the boundaries between artist and activist, direct action protest and pop art. These principles that make for successful creative action are more common today than we realize—yesterday’s Wikipedia blackout in protest of #SOPA is one of many prominent examples—but their foundations rarely get hashed out or written down.
