Creative Visuals Manual 

Creative Visuals Manual Are you going to the US Social Forum?  Download our latest manual to guide you through making creative, bold visuals to proudly represent your contingent!

Creative, bold visuals make a great center piece for every direct action. They do much more than make your actions look good. They unify your group, amplify your message, invite people to have a personal interaction with your work, and provide a visual story through symbols that clarify the issue.  If you integrate art into your campaign strategy and actions, you can make change irresistable.
