About Liam Barrington-Bush

liam barrington bush.jpg

Liam’s journey doesn’t always translate well to paper. From breathing tear gas in the streets outside of international trade summits, to meeting with civil servants to push for stronger environmental legislation; running workshops with international NGO leaders, to blogging about re-instilling a lost sense of humanity into social change organisations, Liam moves easily between seemingly disparate areas of work, bringing perspectives rarely found in each, based on his experiences elsewhere.

He is a co-recipient, with his wife, Jen Wilton, of Canadian publication, The Tyee’s 2013 investigative journalism fellowship, researching the role of British Columbia-based mining firms in Oaxaca, Mexico. He has also written or taken photos for the Guardian,, Upside Down World, Now Magazine, Canadian Dimension,, ResPublica, Social Fish and Campaign Central.

He recently wrote and crowd-funded his first book, Anarchists in the Boardroom: How social media and social movements can help your organisation to be more like people, which will be published in September 2013.
