Trickster Academy

Trickster Academy helps tricksters make tricks, with hands-on trainings on action techniques and on the strategizing that can make tricks useful. Graduates join a vast global mutual-aid network (really!) — of tricksters helping tricksters make tricks.

The first session took place online in the fall of 2020, with 20 veterans of Yes Men actions from South Africa, Ireland, Turkey, Hungary, and several North American countries. It was financed by the Bertha Foundation.

The second session, now underway in spring 2021, is hosted and partly funded by Queens College (CUNY). Eight graduate students from the Americas are developing actions around climate change, politics, and human rights. Watch for results soon on Actipedia!
