The notion of “repair” has become emphatically relevant in the last decade. Individuals and communities have experienced damage such as pandemics, bushfires, and extreme weather on an unprecedented scale and at an accelerated pace. How do individuals and communities conceptualize notions of “damage” and “repair”? What supports matter when supporting learners to creatively face the challenges of an uncertain future and develop a sense of belonging in and responsibility for their communities and the world? This workshop introduces participants to the Transformative Repair project, a collaboration between Project Zero and Independent Schools Victoria, that investigates how strategic engagement with repair as an artistic practice can support individuals and communities in finding purpose in times of uncertainty and challenge. Participants will learn about the shifts in mindset that transformative repair catalyzes and experiment with how the idea of “repair” can open up possibilities for how they respond to damage in their own lives and their own communities.
