aroundtheworld.coop has produced a digital case study on Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative as part of its co-op stories series. aroundtheworld.coop visited the Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative in June this year.
aroundtheworld.coop is a project dreamt and developed by Andrea and Sara, a married couple who decided to put together their passions and skills and embark on a thrilling experience of a lifetime: travelling around the world for one year, documenting different sorts of cooperatives on all the continents. aroundtheworld.coop was developed in partnership with #coopsforwork and the International Co-operative Alliance (IAC). BCCM provided aroundtheworld.coop with contacts for indigenous coops in Australia as part of the global search for case studies.
