Clandestine Leafleting

Art is anything you can get away with. – Marshall McLuhan

In some situations, the simple act of sharing your opinion on a leaflet can be highly dangerous. A creative approach can both keep you safe, and memorably spread your message. Even when there is no risk involved, sometimes leafleting in creative ways –sending your message on a floating lantern or a balloon – can be a more effective way to get people’s attention.

An Example

In the early days of the uprising against President Assad, Syrian activist Ahmed Zaino would write the word “Freedom!” on hundreds of ping-pong balls, release them from the top of a hill in Damascus, and let them bounce through the streets.
