About us

Freerange Cooperative Ltd is a NZ based cooperative operating in Aotearoa, Australia and Atlantis. We make books and journals that would not exist otherwise on topics we care about, provide a publishing platform, and support quality writing and drawing for public consumption, focusing on topics of the city, design, politics and pirates.

Since 2011, our list has addressed the fascinating and difficult context of post-quake Christchurch, looked at journalism in Aotearoa, and continued to develop our bi-annual flagship journal, which is simply called Freerange.

Freerange has contributors from around 30 different countries and over 100 people from a wide variety of disciplines participate in production of material for the books, journals and website. In the ten or so years since this little idea was formed, we’ve published around 15 books, 11 journals, over 300 unique online articles, and supported a number of important fundraising projects.

We have directors in Christchurch, Wellington and Sydney. We use online software (loomio) to enable this diverse bunch of folk to govern the decision making in Freerange.

Freerange Cooperative Ltd operates from  48 Celia Street, Redcliffs, Christchurch, 8081, New Zealand.

Please contact Emma@projectfreerange.com or Barnaby@projectfreerange.com if you have any ideas, complaints, suggestions, or just want to send us something nice.
