Event Recording, The Essence of Repair Culture

Virtual Event

September 12, 2023 at 8am ET on Zoom

Join Maintainers Movement Fellow Mathew Lubari in this virtual event, exploring maintenance, repair and care across countries and global contexts. Mathew is a 2023 Maintainers Movement Fellow, in the “cultures” pathway fellowship. Throughout the 2023 Maintainers Movement Fellowship, each fellow will be hosting an event, writing a landscape scan, as well as compiling a directory related to their research.

While repair and maintenance is relevant from the perspective of circular economy in developed societies, in the case of displacement settings or underdeveloped societies it is a form of survival or at least a means of ensuring the status quo.

The event was aimed at learning how repair is practiced and connects communities across the world.
