The College of Tactical Culture is a think tank on creative activism. CTC participants trade experiences in order to inform practices, build relationships, and create space for new projects and collaborations.
The first college was led by Stephen Duncombe and Steve Lambert at the Eyebeam Art and Technology Center in the Summer of 2009. Out of these meetings came the School for Creative Activism and other training programs at the Center. The questions raised at this CTC included:
- How can we measure the impact of our work?
- What lessons can we learn from popular culture?
- How can we use humor to broach difficult content?
- How can we reach new audiences?
- How can we use new tools and technologies to organize and connect with audiences?
