Let’s Start a Pussy Riot launch 100 Days of Activism

100 Days of Activism

Let’s Start a Pussy Riot  collective (including Verity Flecknell from Storm in a Teacup) are just about to launch a new social media campaign “100 Days of Activism”-  please keep your eyes peeled for more info on our facebook page and twitter account.

Last year we launched and published “Let’s Start a Pussy Riot” book, a collaborative project bringing together voices from across the arts and generations in support of Russian punk collective; Pussy Riot. Later in the year and early this year we toured Universities across the UK delivering talks to students about Pussy Riot, Russia, the state and Orthodox church and issues that we cover in our book like LGBT rights, freedom of speech and collective activism.  One thing we took away from the tour was that students were reluctant to call themselves activists. We decided to start a new social media campaign to encourage others to find their own definitions of activism. 100 Days of Activism aims to explore what it means to be an activist. We will be looking at activists from across the globe and posting inspirational interviews and stories. We need you to help us – please send your responses on whatever issues spark your fire and how you choose to engage – whether it’s artistic, protest, slogans, banners, subversive, internet based or physical. We all have the potential to change the world.

Please send submissions to: 100daysofactivism@gmail.com

Storm in a Teacup will be reposting all the 100 Days content – but please also check out Let’s Start a Pussy Riot facebook page, and the 100 Days of Activism twitter and tumblr to keep up with all the action.
