The RP Community Center is now open!
Our Repurpose Project Community Center promotes the togetherness, creativity, art, music, and play that has been disappearing in our modern world full of technology and consumerism. This event space is centered around ways to tread lightly on the planet and focus on the things that really matter: quality experiences, community, art, music and creativity. We are scheduling both adult and kids workshops, fix-it days (to fix those things instead of tossing and buying again), open-ended play (picture cardboard cities, etc), hackerdays, maker space, live music, performance art, dance, gallery openings, puppet shows, trash fashion shows, community yard sales, clothing swaps, and much much more!
Why are we doing this?? Over the last ten years we’ve witnessed a strong desire for quality experiences centered around people, art, music, and dance. We’ve also noticed that our store is a unique and special place that brings people together and fosters community. Total strangers talk to each other in our store and help each other with project ideas and material suggestions. It is not unusual for some people to stay in our store for hours at a time. Over the years we have watched this and dreamed of a community center with activities to further this mission, and we have begun.
If you are interested in sharing your knowledge about fixing or making, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/SNuj77PoonxU6xfCA. If you would like to help us improve our community center and environmental educational efforts, please consider donating to the cause!

The community center is located at The Repurpose Project at 1920 NE 23rd Ave, Gainesville, FL and open only for scheduled events. Please check calendar to see when it is open!
