The Repository: Archives: Communities.
Hi everyone, this area of the the repositories archives is for the storing of talks from or about communities and sustainable community development. We've got volunteers, businesspeople, cooks, teachers and more... lots of really beautiful and radical ideas for transforming our public spaces into spaces that can really help those that live around them.
It's really early days but when this project gets going we'd like to work with the members from the community in which the repository is situated, making it a truly site-specific work of art.
