The Disobedient Art School is looking to train people in becoming trainers (a person who trains groups to develop skills, tools and methods that foster social change) for creative and effective organization and action. The school fosters disobedient art, the bend between disruptive and aesthetic practices, between radical politics and imagination, to open up other places of power that challenge the status quo through collective creativity. This three-day workshop is an ideal space to try out and share different training techniques as well as to better understand the functions of a trainer. The workshop will teach methods on how to blend art and activism; how actions can be poetic and aesthetically irresistible and how art can be more effective and affective for meaningful change. The workshops will cover topics such as decision making (during the preparation of an action and during the action itself), role allocation, and creative tactics as well as put you in contact with people directly involved in collective actions utilizing artistic means. Games and permaculture methods will be utilized to create trust, understand collective processes and reflect on how to use our most powerful selves to transform reality.
The T4T is group-centered, it builds upon participants’ own experience to introduce new content and help the group access their own wisdom. This approach deepens learning in the training and also cultivates resources for people to access long after the training is over.
