The Restart Project, Give tenants on our Community Initiatives Floor, are hosting a Rosie Restart Party this Saturday 1:00-3:30pm at 3Space International House.
Restart Parties are learning events where volunteers help people fix their own electronics. This event is only for women and non-binary people and is a fantastic opportunity to bring along a broken electronic device (from troublesome toasters to problematic phones) and diagnose and repair faults with your own and other people’s appliances. Please make sure you register your attendance here.
The Restart Project is a people-powered social enterprise that aims to fix our relationship with electronics. It began in 2013 out of frustration with the throwaway, consumerist model of electronics that were sold, and the growing mountain of e-waste that it’s leaving behind. As well as hosting Restart Parties – now taking place across the world – they run a school’s programme and use their collected “Repair data” to campaign for changes and better, more sustainable products
Disclaimer: Repair parties are a community self-repair space. Attending means that you take responsibility for your own gadget. Please back up your data. One item per person, and no microwaves please!
