Welcome to MAKE THE MARCH!

With two weeks to go to 20 October, it’s time to think cardboard, paint and savage wit. Plebgate? The Clegg apology? It’s not going to be hard to find a target…

Rather than wait for the day, we’re asking people to use this website to share their creations in the build up to 20 October. We want MAKE THE MARCH to become something of a teaser for the demo. A rousing trailer!

We can’t provide the sellotape… but we can offer a bit of inspiration. And the chance for your creations to be seen for longer…  and hopefully tweeted and shared by others.

In a nutshell, we want people to make some great stuff, and most importantly, come on the demo and show there is an alternative to Dave and George’s dead-end austerity programme.

Prizes

We’re looking forward to seeing what people share in the build up to 20 October. Will it work? Who knows?! To add a little interest, we’re also running a not-so-serious contest.

There’ll be 5 £100 prizes for material picked out by our judges – comedian Josie Long and artist Bob and Roberta Smith. All photos, graphics and videos uploaded to the MAKE THE MARCH website have a chance of winning. The most shared items will definitely be included on the judges’ shortlist. For more details of the contest, click here. Thanks to the TUC for sponsoring the prizes.

We’re especially keen for you to get in touch if you’ve got any thoughts on creative activism. The blog will run up to 20 October with articles from lots of different people on artful protesting. False Economy’s Clifford Singer starts us off with a piece on his brilliant mydavidcameron.com campaign. If you’d like to write a piece for the blog, drop us a line.
