I propose an outreach program for discussing and teaching repair aimed at isolated seniors. The project would gather stories of repair and create a social and creative outlet. It would be part of the Radical Repair Workshop, and would include collection of oral histories and an exchange of repaired items and skills between myself and participants. It is an opportunity to share experiences, information, and consider repair as a form of bonding and healing that transcends age and material.
