Our friends at the Puffin Cultural Forum have announced the Puffin Interview Series with our own Leader Dr. Joe Chuman!

On the first Sunday of every month at 4pm, Dr. Chuman will delve into and explore the work of renowned authors through meaningful dialogue in an intimate interview format, all streamed live on Youtube. There will be an opportunity for audiences to ask their own questions during a Q&A session.

The Art of Activism by Steve Duncombe and Steve Lambert brings together the authors’ extensive practical knowledge—gleaned from over a decade’s experience training activists around the world—with theoretical insights from fields as far-ranging as cultural studies and cognitive science.

From the United Farm Workers’ boycott movement in sixties’ California to a canal-side beach in present-day Saint Petersburg, these pages are packed with contemporary and historical case studies that have been shown to work in practice.

In addition, the accompanying workbook contains fifty expertly crafted exercises to help you flex your creative imagination and hone your political tactics, taking you step-by-step toward becoming the most persuasive and impactful artistic activist you can possibly be.
