Abstract

How can groups that have had their institutions destroyed by neoliberal reforms use their traditional cultural commitments to promote their interests in the present? This film documents the work of non-academic community co-researchers from Ashington, Northumberland and Aboriginal groups around Brisbane, Australia as they visit one another’s communities in 2015 as part of an international participatory project entitled 'A Cross-Cultural Working Group on "Good Culture" and Precariousness’. The film follows the community members as they find striking similarities in experience and heritage of self-organizing and resistance in otherwise very different societies.
