Description

WiF is a hub for all kinds of manifesto-related activities: it is a repository of interesting and provocative manifestos from around the Web, a creative learning environment for writers of all backgrounds and experience levels, and a test site for new research into manifesto writing in the digital age. The past decade has seen renewed interest in the manifesto, a genre used by revolutionaries since the Diggers and Levellers in 17th-century England, the Declaration of Independence and the Communist Manifesto, and by artists especially since the birth of Futurism and other avant-garde movements at the beginning of the 20th century. At their best, manifestos act as advertisements for change; they build hope in an era of hopelessness; they create networks of likeminded activists, offering people a sense of community and clarity of purpose. Now more than ever, manifestos can help us define principles and forge paths towards brighter, more imaginative futures.
