Radical Projections – 10 tactics for turning information into action

Radical Projections
Films to inform and inspire action in Bradford and Leeds

Sun 7 Feb, 7pm – The Common Place, Leeds
Sun 14 Feb, 5:30pm – 1in12 Club, Bradford

The film features stories from 25 “rights advocates” from around the world who have successfully used information and digital technologies to create positive change. We hear the stories of people like Noha Atef whose blog led to the release of illegally detailed prisoners in Egypt and the activists who upset the government in Tunisia when they used Google Earth and to highlight stories of rights abuses. There is a free set of set of hands-on cards, one for each of the 10 tactics explored in the film, to create and implement your own “information-activism”.
