What is a mending Project?
This question lies at the core of the VMDH project, and the category is voluminous. Any single article that is mended, repaired, or conserved is a mending project, as are collections of them on display in institutions, or in private hands. Images associated with mending, whether artworks or documentary photographs, are projects, as is art of any other genre, from installation to performance—possibly cross referenced with the maker, under "Person." Groups and organizations, such as right to repair lobbyists, repair cafés, or mending circles are also projects.
One major mission of the VMDH is to collate and encourage academic work, including written research, symposia, collaborations, and works in progress: all projects. Also filed under 'project' are historical entities such as archeological digs, or narratives from the recent or distant past associated with a particular location. Big business listings are outside the VMDH remit, but smaller manufacturers, such as suppliers of museum conservation items or recycled fabrics certainly count as mending projects. Please suggest any others you find missing!
