Hi all, my name’s Dan, I am a member of a co-op called Small Axe, a creative agency that runs campaigns and builds movements to make the world a better place.
So in practice that means working with non-profits, charities, social enterprises, campaigning organisations - and cooperatives - to help them grow their audiences, promote their work, produce great creative messaging and design, push it out to get to the right people online and offline, and so on.
We’ve been a co-op since our founding 5 and half years ago, but we’re still working out all the nuts and bolts of how we make the most of the model. We’re very keen to make more links with other CoTech members and coops more generally, so do get in touch if there’s anything you’d like to discuss.
My big personal interest is in psychology and language, and im keen we think about how we can make the most of CoTech as an example of how the economy can work better for everyone in the future, without being held back by the associations and cultural baggage that the coop movement has sometimes been burdened with in the past
