The Nature of the Work

 

By definition, a project working to transform culture operates in all areas of society:  in the public, private and non-for-profit sectors; with organizations large and small; and with myriad socioeconomic and identity demographies. Our facilitating and networking efforts connect people within and across those demarcations, enabling the success of discrete projects and strengthening the broad-based, increasingly consolidated, trans-global repair movement.

The Work

What:

Our work is currently focused on integrating Repair into maker programs in schools and educational non-profits, supporting community repair events, advocating for Repair at the state and local levels, and, as always, promoting repair as a social value. We also recognize great value in local public - private partnerships in Repair and seek opportunities to incorporate promoting such collaborations into the Project.

How:

We advance Repair through articulating the imperative to Repair, initiating new projects, gathering and sharing in-kind resources (e.g., volunteer pool, open-source educational materials, information), networking, grant-making, and consulting (e.g., non-profit organizational development).

Where:

The Culture of Repair Project works exclusively in The East Bay and is currently concentrating on initiatives in Oakland and Berkeley, CA.
