This talkinvited two local non-profits repairing and selling objects with the help of people with a history of drug abuse or long-term unemployment. We discussed topics like; How do you repair people? How is the material doing of repair connected to the repair of self-esteem, loneliness, a missing sense of community? During the talk, we mapped methods and strategies in relation to these questions. These included offering spaces designed to make people feel welcome regardless of who they are, provide work training, let people teach each other, as well as offer a wide variety of social activities.
