Intro to A Culture of Repair: A WRENCH Speaker Series

Over the coming year, we will consider the question 'What is a Culture of Repair' in public in a series of free monthly talks with friends from the Homeland of the Metis/Treaty One Territory, including Andree Forest and Janelle Delorme, The Women's Health Clinic, Geoff Heath, Filmmaker Nilufer Rahman, Daniel Friesen from Winnipeg Police Cause Harm, Helga Jakobson from ArtsJunktion, Merrill Grant from the WRENCH, Musicians Naomi Woo and Ashley Au, Farmer Lydia Carpenter, Levi Foy from Sunshine House, Artist Ness Wynrush, and Author and Organiser Clayton Thomas Mueller.

The conversation will help guide our work, and support Winnipeggers to consider the question as well. How could we define a culture of repair? How is this question useful in considering challenges of climate change, and poverty and its impacts, for example. How does Winnipeg already have a culture of repair? How do we avoid or ignore the potential for repair. Where is repair helpful? Where is it not? If we think it’s a useful concept, how could we move even more towards a culture of repair?

We are pleased to partner with ArtsJunktion and The UW Campus Sustainability Office for this series!



WEDNESDAY, October 26 at 7pm with Merrill Grant and Anna Weier!
