The Repast Project uses storytelling and food to help people connect with their heritage in vibrant, intentional ways that honor the past, make sense in the present, live into the future, and nourish both body and soul.
In our quickly modernizing, globalized world, our communities are changing and our perspectives are shifting.
Holding on to our heritage connects us to our families, our communities, and our ancestry, enriches our lives with beauty and meaning, and provides touchstones that help us celebrate in good times and anchor us when the going gets tough.
But, for many of us, the connection to our heritage, our history, and our ancestry is complicated, tenuous, or not there at all. For others, our traditional cultures no longer align with our evolving values or fit into our everyday lives.
And, without strong ties to our roots, we're hungry for deeper connections to our pasts, ourselves, our stories, and one another.
THE REPAST PROJECT HELPS YOU SATISFY THAT HUNGER.

Welcome to The Repast Project! I'm Emily.
I help individuals, businesses, and organizations to explore how history and culture impacts their identities and outlooks and to preserve their heritage in ways that resonate in the present and remain relevant in the future.
I believe that, as we progress on so many fronts, we need to find new ways to relate to our cultures, our roots, and our stories—ways that reflect our current perspectives and priorities, that help us make authentic connections with one another, and that make it possible for us to change as times change and evolve in our lives, our work, and our communities.
That's why I founded The Repast Project, and that's why I'm dedicated to helping you find progressive, creative ways to explore your stories, reconnect with your roots, learn from your history, and celebrate who you are, where you come from, and where you're going.
