Hey Folks.
I am hoping to get some ideas from you.  I am gearing up and working hard on the next series of works, campaigns, projects, etc for The Art of Dismantling.  One area of focus is going to be on outreach within communities that are generally apathetic or non-politicized.

My work at Autonomous Music provides a number of opportunities for plugging art, tabling, presentations, etc into environments and events that are heavily attended by non-politicized people.  In the past, i’ve had varied success engaging in such environments.  This not only pertains to The Art of Dismantling, but also to the CLDC, and several other projects i’m affiliated with.

So,  what i’m looking for is ideas, suggestions, approaches, tactics, stories, anything really, in regards to how to present radical ideas and materials to non-politicized folks in a way that inspires them to engage.

How can art and media be used to get non-politicized folks interested in radical theory and politics?  How can art and media be used to strengthen strategic alliances between political organizations and non-politicized resources?  How can tabling be used in non-politicized environments to effectively get materials out?

Anything and everything helps, feel free to send over comments, ideas, suggestions, etc to:
chris@autonomousmusic.org

Or should i create an open forum where we can all see each others suggestions?

PLEASE REPOST THE LINK TO THIS PAGE ON YOUR NETWORKS SO WE GET AS MUCH FEEDBACK AS POSSIBLE
