Have you heard about Georgia’s Rave Revolution? Can a protest based on thousands of young Georgians raving the streets produce a positive outcome?

Based on Canal180’s series New Activists of European Culture’s fourth episode, journalist Matthew Collin will discuss the effects of bringing clubbing outside as a form of activism.

Matthew Collin is a foreign correspondent for the BBC, Al Jazeera and Agence France-Presse, and now an editor at the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network.

He is the author of The Time of the Rebels, This Is Serbia Calling and Altered State, and a former editor of the Big Issue, the Time Out website and i-D magazine.
