Repairing ‘a bit of a lost art’
For most people, when a beloved possession breaks, it’s an inconvenience. For Ally Brisbin and Carla Bruni in Chicago, it’s an opportunity to pull their whole community together and have some fun. Brisbin hosts monthly repair clinics in her café and invites neighbors from far and wide to bring in their belongings that need mending – for free. At these “Community Glue” workshops, neighbors are helping neighbors, and cutting down on waste.
