The Masked Activists’ Ball

Seomra Spraoi / Thursday 15th April / 8 til late

Do you fancy yourself as Zorro, Phoolan Devi, Robin Hood, Granuaile, Pancho Villa, Annie Oakley, Captain Jack Sparrow, Angela Davis, Ned Ludd or Subcomandante Marcos?

Is there a guerrilla, guerrilla gardener, Raging Granny, highwayman (or woman), graffiti artist, Woman in Black, Amsterdam squatter, Redstocking, Italian partisan, French 68er, cloaked anarchist or Communard buried deep in your subconscious?

Set them free at the Masked Activists’ Ball!

We’re launching a serious course for social movement organisers, community educators, NGO workers, grassroots activists, advocates with minority groups, feminists, GLBTQ activists, environmentalists, trade unionists, solidarity activists, development workers, anti-racists, anti-war activists etc etc etc — people who are already doing it and want to do it better, and people who want to start, learning from each other’s experience and skills. But we reckon we should have fun along the way…
