10 Tactics Remixed
New media has changed who has access to information, the speed with which it can be shared and amplified and what it can be shaped to say. Activists and advocates around the world have creatively and strategically utilised these advances in information technologies, for their campaigns and advocacy. In 2009 Tactical Tech made a film about this called 10 Tactics for Turning Information into Action.
Now, 10 Tactics Remixed curates snapshots of information-activism since then, featuring stories of how citizens have reacted to and challenged institutional power from the ground up. It also muddles a benign and celebratory view of social-media-based activism by reflecting on examples that reveal how information functions in a digital environment. From the challenges of working with vast amounts of data, like the US Diplomatic Cables, to the misguided oversimplifications of Invisible Children's Kony 2012 campaign, 10 Tactics Remixed identifies the emerging challenges and opportunities of working with information in activism.
