Here are three projects that need our help and are worth investing in:
1.) “My Village, My Lobster” A Documentary Film Project
“My Village, My Lobster” is a one-hour documentary film that tells the powerful and harrowing story of the indigenous Miskito lobster divers along Nicaragua’s Caribbean Coast who risk their lives diving for the region’s most lucrative resource – the Caribbean spiny lobster.
2.) The Yes Men Present: The Yes Lab for Creative Activism
For years, the Yes Men have been tinkering with side-splitting mischief as a way to fight injustice. Our latest film about those efforts, The Yes Men Fix the World, won lots of awards and was released all over the planet… but it simply did not fix the world…
3.) The Art of the Patent
New inventions are described in patent documents, which usually have a dry written description and a number of black-and-white line-art drawings. Just about everyone involved with a patent is listed on the front cover–with one exception: the artist who created the patent drawings. In the US alone we now have over 200 years of patents—more than 8 million documents–illustrating everything from the cotton gin to the iPod. Yet the artist is not mentioned anywhere in the patent record. They remain anonymous.
