The History of City Repair

Dear Community,

We, City Reparians old and new, are hosting a day of storytelling and inspirational chronology. If you:

- are City Repair - were City Repair - want to be City Repair - don't even know what City Repair is

The gathering will be held at City Repair Head Quarters (3125 E Burnside) on October the Fifth, from 10am-3pm. We will spend the day progressively tracing the history of City Repair, following a loosely linear timeline. We invite you to come witness, share and explore with us in a warm, fun space!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 503.235.8946 or [email protected]
