This sounds great!

It starts a little early in the morning for me unfortunately - do you know whether the talk is going to be recorded @Gabrielle?

I believe so! It’s going to be live-streamed on some other platforms CREW’s YouTube/FB, recorded, and then, if all goes according to planned, shared to the Massachusetts Media exchange. I will be sure to send it along!



Just wanted to share the ‘Repair Revolution’ book talk recording, which will soon also be available on the Mass Media Exchange as well.

All Best,



Thanks so much Gabrielle! I’m excited to watch it :slight_smile:
