Announcing the Meddleverse™

The MeddleverseOO can be visited online or in "meatspace"


Two years ago, we Yes Men received a generous seed grant to "replicate," i.e. help activist groups use our tricks. We spent the next two years absorbed in careful experiments that built on the twenty years before that.

Now — on the occasion of a retrospective showing of things that we've made, and in the hopes of fulfilling the grantor's wish to see "hundreds" of Yes Men take wing — we're inviting you to sign up for our Meddleverse.., under one of three easy plans:

You know some energized, skillful activists, and you're ready to go make trickstery waves — you just need some coaching, with maybe a brainstorm/workshop thrown in. (A whole bunch of "our" projects have happened this way, and after the latest we feel sure we can do many more.)

COST: However many hours you need, multiplied by a scientifically-determined hourly rate that takes your best interests into account.

You want a project to happen, but you really don't want to get your hands dirty (even though we've told you how fun and legally pretty safe it is). We'll brainstorm a project together, figure out how it fits within your campaign, and then one of our team will go off and do most of the work, checking in periodically. (This used to be our main way of working, but we can only do a few such projects each year.)

COST: Depends on scale!

You like to puzzle things out for yourself, so you've read through our stories and lessons and tricks and examples, gotten hold of our guidebook (early next year, unless you rip off the PDF earlier), maybe even visited the physical Meddleverse!!. All you need now is to set off on endless adventures! It's not rocket surgery.

COST: Free.

This stuff can often be quite effective, and you get lots of bang for the buck, especially in the free version. Get started above — or below!
