Conversation series on building awareness: September thru November 2013

We’re trying something a little different with our New Tactics conversations. Over the span of 3 months (Sept to Nov) we’ll be hosting a series of conversations all related to the theme: Building Awareness. We believe that this will allow the community to dig deeper on topics that interest them.

Educating individuals and communities about human rights issues is critical to generate interest and involvement in human rights movements. Tactics to build awareness range from street theater and public art to media engagement and video activism. While helping to develop new allies for your cause, these tactics provide an essential starting point for public dialogue about human rights, and focus attention on those responsible for human rights crimes.

Explore tactics that build awareness with the New Tactics online community in these conversation topics:

September 16 to 20: Media Tactics for Social Change, in partnership with Holly Hammond of Plan to Win

October 14 to 18: Change the Story: Harnessing the power of narrative for social change, in partnership with the Center for Story-based Strategy

November 11 to 15: Visualizing Information for Advocacy, in partnership with Tactical Technology Collective


I look forward to seeing you in these conversations!
