About this coop:

We are a group of young people that know the importance of developing integrated communication products and services in the co-operative world. We have the strong sense that we are capable of shaping our own future, one step at a time.

Proyecto Coopar was created in 2009 by a group of students from different professional backgrounds. In the beginning it was a graphic design and communication initiative that worked in the co-operative sector on different projects.

Since its creation the graphic design area has worked in the areas of image development, electronic programming and editorial work. Now, it consists of a creative group that can deploy an enormous range of visual services and products.

With the higher income it has been bringing in under this new creative group, the co-operative has also developed the News Agency Ansol, the first Social Economy dedicated agency of Argentina. It is now an integrated group of professional journalists that each day produce and update content on the web.

Over time, Proyecto Coopar has begun to participate in 2nd degree organizations like “Red Gráfica” a graphic oriented co-operative federation and “Fecootra” a national level federation. Since 2012 the co-operative has a new and bigger space in which to work.

The associates of Proyecto Coopar believe in the concept of inter co-operation, the value of collective work with other organizations to truly advance towards a brighter future through participation, self-management and responsibility.
