Be The Media! Workshop With Mike Bonanno: The Theory and Practice of Culture Jamming
February 4, 2007 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm EST
This workshop addresses how to craft a message that will cut through the crowded and cluttered media environment, for maximum effectiveness at a minimum cost. Join Mike Bonnano for an overview of the history of culture jamming, from the Da Da movement through the Situationists to Joey Skaggs, Negativeland, Adbusters, and The Yes Men. Learn the strategic tactics you need for your artistic and political goals, from how to create an effective public intervention, to writing a press release that will get attention, to creative use of PowerPoint and much much more! Mike Bonanno is one of the leading members of The Yes Men, a culture jamming activist group. Their exploits in “identity correction” are documented in the film The Yes Men.
We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
