“You never change something by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes
the existing model obsolete.”
― R. Buckminster Fuller
Hello all, I’m Muirén (muir + éan), the self-funding organizer and lead product architect of Síofra Tech Cooperative for Social & Technological Innovation in Performing Arts, worker-owned and focused on continuous participatory action research, design, manufacture, distribution, and patron training in the use of a preternatural fusion of hardware, software, wetware.
STC is the founding member of a diverse cooperative union, and resident enterprise of the proposed intentional community Vil Zwazo Lanmè, or City of Seabirds in Haitian Creole.
You are invited to study this summary concept of cultural and economic solidarity, and hopeful join in the research, equitable evaluation, and strategic planning, prerequisite to incorporation.
If you are a US citizen, much of this may sound like fringe culture, however, it is a proposition founded on evidentiary science, with successful, long-term precedents around the world.
To be clear, there are perhaps a thousand various sustainable cooperatives across the US (not counting credit unions), while by comparison, tens of thousands are operating successfully around the world, with the 300 largest reporting turnover of $2.14 trillion USD in 2020.
Thank you for now, and please make use of the underlined links for a deeper dive into terms that may be unfamiliar. Without further ado, ABOUT THE UNION.
