Every Friday beginning Sept. 23, the NYU Yes Lab will involve students, faculty, local activists, and the occasional government official in strategizing and accomplishing funny media-getting actions. This fall’s projects will focus on the problem of income disparity and the rich-poor divide, locally and globally. Participants will join “action groups” to come up with funny media actions around manifestations of income disparity; specific focuses may include the evisceration of workers’ rights, declining standards of living, corporate manipulation of our legal system and tax code, paranoia around immigration, military spending, environmental injustice, and so on.
For details on locations and times, etc., please email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about yourself, your interests, and your skills.
