On December 1st we launch AIME OP SHOP to support 100,000 marginalised kids by 2025. It’s the first global digital op shop that brings together people who want to make the world a better place to share their soulful creations and share their stories of how they've made it. So we can create a heap of opportunities for young kids currently with life's door closed on them.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Black wattle club - Chapter "Lemonade for Headaches" - story about medicine and nutrition. This carving has a map on it of a place with lots of native medicinal plants. Those plants are from all over Australia and most of them are growing in the wrong place, far from home. They, therefore, lose their medicinal quality. This carving carries the knowledge of how place and time are essential variables in Indigenous methods of inquiry, and could be very useful additions to western science and medicine. In this carving, we reimagine what 'holistic' and 'sustainable' might come to mean if some different lenses were applied to those concepts.

ABOUT TYSON : “Tyson Yunkaporta is a rich thinker who is helping remind us all of the value of Indigenous systems thinking, not as some antiquated idea, or mythological concept, but as serious heavyweight intelligence that can inform modern leaders to create healthier richer systems that allow all life on earth to thrive. We are so inspired to work with Tys day in day out, I’m lucky to hang with him in the Indigneous knowledge labs at Deakin, and am so inspired by this donation, it’s driving us to get out to 100,000 kids around the world by 2025. What’s on auction here as part of our debut collection on the AIME OP Shop are the carvings Tyson did for Santalk, his award winning book. Hope you’re lucky enough to have this energy in your life. Thanks for your energy and vibes to keep pushing and creating change”

- Jack MB, AIME CEO & Founder

Tyson’s explained why he’s donating these items for the AIME Op shop, “AIME is the only place I know outside of my home community where you can invest without expectation of return, but know it wasn't a waste of time.”
