About ActionSkills

ActionSkills is an alliance of Australian technology professionals that have dedicated their lives to creating positive social change.

We are the only web design company in Australia whose people have actively worked on the ground organising grassroots movements, protest events and supporting First Nation campaigns.

ActionSkills provides a breadth of experience across areas of digital technology, community organising and small business.

Social Enterprise

ActionSkills evolved from our orginal studio, Dvize Creative, established in 2000. Profits from our commercial work has funded our pro bono projects and activities over many years. Here are some examples of Glenn’s probono work.

We are now in the process of registering ActionSkills as a social enterprise, and plan to focus more on training and mentoring to create a new wave of digital activists.

Currently we produce a bunch of free resources and support many groups via our community hosting program.
