Repairing our things is a stake in the ground for a creative and responsible relationship with our physical world.
Not surprisingly, Repair is a vibrant and surging international movement.
That Repair be an actionable and pervasive cultural value.
Our work supports initiatives that cultivate repair being understood (again!) as a natural individual and societal imperative, changing how we think and act relative to the things we have, through networking, collaborating, logistical support, sharing information and facilitating securing resources.
A Little More on That ...
The Culture of Repair Project is about more than just diminishing resource usage in manufacturing, transporting and selling new products, and post-consumption. At a more fundamental level it’s about cultivating the well-being of individuals, communities, and the natural environment through changing our relationships with the material objects and social systems in our lives. It’s about reshaping our culture into one that takes care of and repairs what's important to us, as a matter of course.
