As "Reverend Billy," performer, writer and activist, Bill Talen creates guerilla theatre for the 21st century. Using the city as his stage, and a gospel choir as his chorus, the creator of The Church of Life After Shopping champions post-consumerism, environmental engagement and the individual voice within community. Employing radio broadcast, film, books, and social media, Talen cultivates wildness wherever he can.

"I was arrested reciting the First Amendment in Union Square Park and understood I had no choice about my work anymore, that being an artist meant rising to the radical promise of the First Amendment itself. The Freedom there is our great Commons - and now I spend my time defending it, expanding it."
