Umm... a mission?
Most of the time Peng! is a collective of smart and silly people producing creative political stunts and enriching campaigns with subversion, humour and civil disobedience.
We specialise in subversive direct action, culture jamming, civil disobedience and guerilla communications. We use these tactics to create difficult moments for politics and business and make media stories about social justice.
We also use these tactics to help others of course! Through workshops and collaborations, we work with traditional campaigners and NGOs to capitalise on moments of press attention to launch and extend their campaigns.
