Working together to create positive change
Our Life’s Work
We are working towards systems and services that can provide low cost services to the groups on the ground who are creating massive change with a fraction of the resources that the big organisations enjoy.
Tech and support is the most important component in creating positive change, as outlined in the Philanthropy: Towards a Better Practice Model report.
We have been running as a social enterprise since 2000, using profits from our commercial work to fund our pro bono and grassroots activist work.
By using our commercial services, you are directly funding our probono grassroots work, as well as our training programs.
Multidisplinary campaign experience
Worked with many solutions focused groups building websites, developing digital strategy and helping with tech platforms.
Worked with various left political parties and campaigns to help grow audience and voter reach.
Worked with many grassroots groups and campaigns on various roles, ranging from events logistics and community organising, to on the ground support.
We provide a range of digital technology for grassroots and non-profits, including free hosting and support services for over 30 grassroots groups.
We are artists and creatives, and use this in our communication work for positive change, as well as connecting other artists into the campaign network.
Experience working with Sustainable Business Practices presenting the business case for sustainability to CEO’s and corporate board members.
