The second event's theme is "actitainment." It will look into the expansion of a movement which joins entertainment with performance: adbusters, Yes Men, Reverend Billy, etc. There will be a panel discussion, a band, and a screening.

Reverend Billy is a hero of mine (neighborlujah!) so I'll be sure not to miss that one.
