title:  The Full Story

'Actipedia' - crowd-sourced database of activist art - goes online

The Yes Lab and the Center for Artistic Activism have launched, an open-access, user-generated database of creative activism case studies. The intention is to inspire activists to more creative and effective actions.

Actipedia is built on an open-source platform with formats for viewing, searching and posting examples. The site draws case studies from original submissions, reprinted news articles, and informal snippets of action reports. At present, Actipedia hosts over 400 case studies from countries worldwide.

The Yes Lab is the work of The Yes Men, Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno, and helps activist groups carry out creative actions. The Center for Artistic Activism was founded by Stephen Duncombe, artist and professor at New York University and Steve Lambert, artist and professor at SUNY Purchase, as a place to explore, analyze, and strengthen connections between social activism and artistic practice.
