Why You Should Be In New York July 1st

Activists estimate that half the billboards in New York City are illegal. Between fudged permits, lack of enforcement, and millions in profit, outdoor advertising has become a corporate black market that wont flinch at breaking laws to get your attention. On July 1st, the Anti-Advertising Agency and Rami Tabello of IllegalSigns.ca will give a free workshop teaching you how to identify illegal advertising and get it taken down. You will leave this workshop equipped to have illegal signs removed in your neighborhood.

Canadian activist group IllegalSigns.ca is responsible for the removal over 100 illegal billboards in the City of Toronto and will reveal how the billboard industry gets away with breaking the law and what New Yorkers can do to stop it.

Tuesday July 1st, 2008 6pm – Free
Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology
540 W. 21st St.
New York, NY 10011

    hi there. this is exactly what i’ve been thinking about over here in london. whilst i’d love to travel to new york to find out more, both financial and carbon reasons prevail.

    but i was wondering if there was any information you could share with me so i can start up something over here. i have a project in mind called ‘reclaim the view’ which i am in the process of an arts funding application to get started.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    keep up the good work

    Yes, can we get information if we cannot make it to NY?
