Rekindle creates opportunities for resourcefulness. They focus on transforming undervalued resources through care, connection and craft; this being the opposite of wastefulness. Being resourceful is both good for us and good for the earth upon whose finite resources we depend. Resourcefulness requires us to utilise and value our inner resources and our ability to access what we need for lives we value. Being truly resourceful connects us within communities as they share the resources they have.
Since the beginning of Rekindle in 2011 in Auckland, then Christchurch, they have run various different projects that have been inherently focused on resourcefulness; some small, some as big as a whole house!
For a summary of the kaupapa of their work, please see this TEDx talk by Rekindle's founder Juliet Arnott.
