Cooperative Structure

Song Cooperative marks a revolutionary stride, weaving music, art, education, business, and digital commerce into a solidarity cooperative owned by fairly by workers, creator-contributors and supporters.  A year of collaborative efforts with cooperative minds, and creators has birthed a functional, democratic structure.

Our guiding principles align with cooperative values, and we proudly support the seven cooperative principles and are members of Cooperative Associations.
