Game 1 Theme Collaborative creative actions to defend the environment and promote renewable energies

The Big Idea Social change often begins with challenging monolithic myths and paradigms promoted by the status quo to protect its position. As artists, what are some of the successful strategies from the past that we might adapt and redeploy? What are the very new strategies? How do we define our goals, then our strategies and coordinate them with other allies so we are attacking this on many fronts together and engaging different strata of the social structure simultaneously?

In other words, how can the disrupters, the healers, the system infiltrators and the visionaries coordinate their efforts for maximum impact and real change using arts as fulcrum and "on switch"?
