Beautiful Trouble: A Toolbox for Revolution
Beautiful Trouble (OR Books 2012, assembled by Andrew Boyd with Dave Oswald Mitchell) is a book and web toolbox that puts the accumulated wisdom of decades of creative protest into the hands of the next generation of change-makers.
Through short interrelated modules, the project lays out the core tactics, principles, and theoretical concepts that drive creative activism. A series of cases studies highlights these best practices and provides analytical tools for change-makers to learn from their own successes and failures.
Beautiful Trouble is useful for both artists and activists, as it showcases the synergies between artistic imagination and shrewd political strategy.
