The CTC is a think tank on creative activism led by Stephen Duncombe and Steve Lambert, where participants traded experiences in order to inform practices, build relationships, and create space for new projects and collaborations.
The College of Tactical Culture workshop will kick off with a panel of participants, including Brooke Singer, Britta Riley, Eve Mosher, Stephen Duncombe, and Steve Lambert, who will summarize lessons taught during the college in the first 75 minutes. The remaining 45 minutes of the workshop will be a discussion about the purpose of the CTC, the lessons taught by each panelist, and an open dialogue with Conflux participants.
The College of Tactical Culture (CTC) examined questions such as:
How can we measure the impact of our work?
What lessons can we learn from popular culture?
How can we use humor to broach difficult content?
How can we reach new audiences?
How can we use new tools and technologies to organize and connect with audiences?
