Beautiful Rising: Stuffed With Ideas For Creative Activism

Beautiful Rising seems to be an outcrop from the Beautiful Trouble people - but really focused (and beautifully so) on organising an enormous range of creative-activists techniques for use. 

The tag-cloud to the side is already a vital resource, filled up by a network of global contributors who have been working on this for a while (it's just launched and already massive). 

We really like the way they group these techniques into five categories (or "tools in the tool box") 

Stories: Accounts of memorable actions and campaigns, analysing what worked, or didn’t, and why.

Tactics: Specific forms of civic action, such as a flash mob or a parade

Principles: Time-tested guidelines for how to design successful actions and campaigns

Theories: Big picture ideas that help us understand the world and how we might change it.

Methodologies: Strategic frameworks and hands-on exercises to help you assess your situation and plan your campaign.
