TRAIDtalks: Repair In the Community
Thu 23 June 2016, 18:30 – 20:00 BST
A passionate network of active citizens have been making headway with the repair movement - sharing skills to benefit the community with an aim to tackle waste and counter capitalist consumerism.
For our eighth #TRAIDtalks we hear from 3 leading voices with unique viewpoints of Repair In The Community. Janet Gunter, co-founder of the Restart Project; PHD researcher and mending activist Bridget Harvey and blogger Jen Gale from My Make Do And Mend Life to inspire a repair revolution with wellbeing, skill-sharing, community and concern for the environment at the very root. To revive the forgotten art of repairing things and improving our relationship with 'stuff', this TRAIDtalks will involve story-telling and sharing case studies to inspire positive change within your own community to become a mending activist.
Special thanks to Ziferblat for sharing their community space with us. A concept derived from Russia, Ziferblat offers a pay per minute friendly community space that encourages people to create, collaborate and play.
Arrival from 6pm for refreshments.
Talk will start shortly after 6.30pm.
