What is a collective? How does Paper Tiger function as a Collective?
A collective is an organization that strives to break down hierarchy. We have no executive director, no managers, no bosses. All major decisions are made at collective meetings by consensus. We have a small part-time staff that carries out the day-to-day distribution and administrative functions. All production work is done by volunteers.
Paper Tiger is made up by a mix of people from all walks of life, each collective member brings their own experience to the group.Currently, Paper Tiger is mostly run by volunteer collective members. However, we have one part-time staff person who is responsible for managing administrative operations and Paper Tiger TV distribution. She also works closely with the collective on productions, fundraising, and outreach.
