The Yes Lab: Brainstorming creative action

Duration
120’

Organisers: Docudays UA

 

With the participation of Sean Devlin, a member of Yes Lab

 

By impersonating big corporations and corrupt leaders who put profits ahead of everything else, the Yes Men expose their abuses of the environment and human rights and draw media attention to crucial issues. Over the last few years, the Yes Men have given away all their secrets to activists, sharing what they have learned from their last decade or so of doing ‘identity correction’. The result is the Yes Lab, a workshop to help activist groups carry out attention-grabbing creative actions on their own.

 

Sean Devlin is a Filipino-Canadian multimedia artist, comedian, activist and action co-ordinator with the Yes Lab. Sean’s activist work is rooted in principles of climate justice and ancient practices of creative disruption. For four years he organized the artist collective known as ShitHarperDid.com. The group’s work initially went viral during the 2011 Canadian election. As an action co-ordinator and thought stylist for Yes Lab he has played a critical role in numerous Yes Lab actions such as the viral Shell Arctic hoax, Occupy Wall Street creative confrontations and infiltration of the TPP trade negotiations. As a workshop facilitator he has delivered Yes Lab trainings across Canada and in the United States, the Netherlands, Germany, England, Poland, Switzerland, Lithuania, Turkey and Brazil.
