The GT Handbook is a document that welcomes the reader into the world of Guerrilla Translation with a narrative, colourful approach. It is aimed at those who have joined or are interested in joining the collective, are researching our model or have an interest in a practical understanding of Open Value Cooperativism and/or Distributed Cooperative Organizations (DisCOs).

By the Quarterly Evaluation in January, coinciding with the end of the new members’ first stage of the Dating Phase, a fantastic rapport and overwhelmingly positive (cyber)atmosphere had been established within the group.

Simply put, we needed a chance to hang out and bond, and a grant awarded by Guerrilla Foundation allowed us to do just that.
