Collective Joy = How to Harness the Power of #Occupy for Your Nonprofit Cause

What Barbara Erhenreich AND the Occupy Movement are teaching me is that we need to take the collective expression of protest around the world and have a dance-off.

Really?

YEAH.

What does your cause need next?

Art!

Music!

Face-painting!

Big puppets!

Why?

Why would you want to make people dance and sing around your very serious cause?

Because there is power in collective joy. There is power in celebration. Resistance is not about drudgery and speeches. It’s about a spiral dance, a circle dance, facepainting, big puppets, and changing the world one square at a time. Getting everyone to dance together.

Here’s a video from OccupyLove.org

Barbara Erhenreich wrote a book called “Dancing in the Streets: The Power of Collective Joy”
