Open letter to Tony and Christie (Facilitators of Makers Lab at the ISL)

Tony ad Christie,

Just wanted to say thanks you for doing such an excellent job at sharing “maker culture” and your time and interest in doing workshops and working with us in solidarity. Your work has added an interesting dynamic to the idea of community development work and social justice work and has given us a new understanding about how technology can be integrated into community development work. I think technology and making things is an important component of working with people now because it is a lot of the world we live in. Technology is also important because it helps us to imagine our world as different or better. Designing making  and repairing are a necessary part of a liberation practice.  And liberation is our essential fmission. Bless and love
