Saturday, 5th May 2007: DIY Aktivisma @ WPFD2007, Central Market!
@ Pesta Seni – World Press Freedom Day by CIJ
What in the world is an activist? Do you need a collective? Must you join an NGO? Is it necessary to have lots of button badges, chant slogans and hang out at demos?
Uhm‚Ä¶ we don‚Äôt really know. But we reckon activism is whatever happens when someone does, says or thinks of something that doesn‚Äôt just involve the individual, but the larger context that we exist in. Something about relationship between the self and other people, public institutions like the media, school or government, animals small and big, air, water, sky or trees.
But hey, what do we know… Come hang out with us during the World Press Freedom Day Art Fest at Central Market, and set us straight!
In the meantime, we‚Äôll also be sharing skills like silk-screen, stenciling, playing with masks, illustrations and more! Oh, and a session on what to do when the police tries to arrest you (of course)
