Central to the Restart project is the idea of the "Restart Party" an event where members of the public bring along "broken electronics and sad kit to troubleshoot and fix". The event is facilitated by a number of repairers who bring tools and expertise, and who facilitate people's learning to repair things for themselves. Restart are holding two events at Arcola this month, a Restart party following a "how to" workshop.
Recently, Restart has been taking apart and repairing FM radios, coffee grinders, printers, mobile phones, laptops, tablets, hair driers, you name it! And if you have an annoying software problem, they can help you figure out what might be its cause!
Wouldn't it be great if this could become a regular event in Hackney? What's needed? A venue, an organiser, some repairers and people who want stuff fixed rather than throwing it away. We should be able to get that together, no?
Get in touch if you are interested in hosting, organising or repairing, or go along on 14th September to get your stuff fixed! Don't despair, repair!
