Beautiful Trouble - A Toolbox for Revolution

Beautiful Trouble
Everything you need to "think outside the box" is inside this box - a strategy card deck, Beautiful Trouble is putting the key strategies and tactics that have powered centuries of people-powered victories right into the palm of your hand. Now the art and science of creative direct action will be concentrated in a deck of 99 cards you can play — to get creatively unstuck, design an action that pops, or plan a winning campaign. t’s an entire social movement laboratory in your hands — a game (actually 10 games in one) that you can play to equip yourself with the strategic and tactical know-how to upend the status quo and build a more just world. It’ll get you thinking outside the box (that, um, these cards will come in) about what art and creativity can do to win campaigns, change the world, and make… beautiful trouble! What comes in the Card Deck: 99 cards in 5 suits: Tactics: Specific forms of creative action, such as a flash mob or blockade. Principles: Hard-won insights that can guide or inform creative action design. Theories: Big-picture concepts and ideas that help us understand how the world works and how we might go about changing it. Methodologies: Strategic frameworks and hands-on exercises to help you assess your situation and plan your campaign. Stories: Accounts of memorable actions and campaigns, analysing what worked (or didn’t) and why. Useful for illustrating how principles, tactics, theories and methodologies can be successfully applied in practice. Plus: Special Cards: 1 Risk Card, 5 Wild Cards (1 blank card in each suit), and 1 game-play cards. All the cards in this deck are a gateway to the larger Beautiful Trouble toolbox— assembled by literally hundreds of grassroots campaigners and cultural workers from across five continents along with notable movement strategists including Arundhati Roy, George Monbiot, Vijay Prasad, and Mark and Paul Engler.
