our approach

Partnership networks

Cockatoo CoLab is a partnership vehicle. We have an extensive network of partners who see value in working with people in their own environment. Our job is to activate these partners and bring them into the venture. So, for example, we invite them to join in the on-the-ground work of developing expertise within the communities we work with. We invite staff of the partners we work with to spend time with us and the community to generate new things, at the same time learning from these communities – too often the assumption is that expertise comes from outside. We know it resides within.

Our partners include corporations, representative groups, government departments, not-for-profits, universities, cultural and sporting groups, to name a few. Feel free to join us to explore this space.
