Reskilling in September 2018

The “RE” event happens.  The last Tuesday in September, e.g. Sept 25th, 2018 at the meeting room of Portland Library– 32nd and Portland Ave, Louisville KY.

We will discuss all thing “RE”, such as reskilling, reusing, recycling, resilience, redressing, refusing, etc.

After the event, the PDF slides will be posted here…as well as audio of the event for a podcasting with full visual assist without the bandwidth of a video file/stream.

Reskilling — Sept2018

Enjoy and get inspired.

Loosely under the tentative auspices of the neighborhood association, PNI (Portland Now Inc)…and as such one could think of this event as the Re-Now event.



August Reskilling Reusing and all that and more

This is a paste from Facebook’s event on the group called PNI or Portland Now Inc:

This reskilling event is held monthly on the last Tuesday in the library and is meant to foster the spirit and actions of developing: Reskilling, resilience, reuse, redress, and lifehacking. These take on many forms, and this forum intentionally tries to promote sharing of stories, techniques, passion. Typically there are slides projected to foster impressions and reactions. Some light refreshments and a song or two are offered. The all-purpose room in the library is big enough for you, your family, and friends. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.

—– Please note: Gathering is at Portland Library at 6:30pm.

Audio recording of the event will be available after the meeting, with time for technical considerations.  Also, the slides/pictures will be posted in PDF as well.

Reskilling — March 2018

There was Dare to Care meal serving for kids, then Committee meeting for Health and Education after that, so this meeting got started late, and the staff kicked us out before the full throated event unfurled–so it’s only 45 short minutes long.
