NYC GRASSROOTS MEDIA CONFERENCE THIS WEEKEND

February 27-29 at the New School
http://www.nycgrassrootsmedia.org

The NYC Grassroots Media Conference will feature over 40 workshops 
and panels conducted by more than 40 local organizations on topics 
ranging from video production to puppet-making; from how to start 
your own record label to practical ways that community media can help 
fight environmental racism. The goals of the weekend-long event are 
to promote awareness of the independent media in the city, to 
strengthen and unify the city’s independent media community, and to 
create strong bonds among community groups and local media makers.

The Stay Free! panel is on Sunday, Feb. 29, at 2:30 pm, and will 
focus on using pranks and parody for social change. It'll feature: 
Carrie Moyer and Sue Schaffner from Dyke Action Machine 
(http://www.dykeactionmachine.com), who you may remember from the 
Illegal Art Exhibit; Jonah Peretti (Nike sweatshop prankster and 
co-creator of BlackPeopleLoveUs.com); The Yes Men 
(http://www.theyesmen.org), whose projects include masquerading as 
members of the WTO and promoting the benfits of slavery at world 
trade conferences; and Andrew Boyd from Billionaires for Bush 
(http://www.billionairesforbush.com). Stay Free! will also be tabling 
throughout the conference so be sure to drop by and say hi.
