Once again on the last Tuesday of the month at the Portland Library another reskilling/reusing event is extant. As always everyone’s welcome. Arrive at 6:30pm to see the start. Come with questions about reskilling/reusing and the like…or share your own stories of resilience, life-hacking, restitution, re-constitution…(You get it).

If the event is missed, all participants and all other people everywhere are free to download the podcast and associated slides that go with the event. There’s a richness that’s comes from being part of something “re” — you could call it ‘getting reech’!

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.

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.
