Community Glue is a project rooted in sustainability — that of manufactured goods and of communities. Inspired by the “repair cafe” movement in Amsterdam, we offer opportunities for people to have their weathered or broken belongings rehabilitated by their neighbors at no cost. At Fix-Ups, local tinkerers and handy-folk volunteer their time and services to neighbors in need of repair. Our goals are to get people thinking twice before discarding objects that need a little elbow grease, and to bring people together.
In addition to hosting Fix-Ups at local establishments like Kitchen Sink, Community Glue will hold skill-sharing workshops and other programs to foster handiwork skills and inspire some fixin’ up at home as well. Everyone is encouraged to participate, so grab your tool box and the busted lamp that’s been in the closet for a year, and head to the next Fix-Up!
