Fixfest UK

Restart Project

About this Event

Fixfest is a gathering for community repair in the UK.

Join us online for a series of engaging online events curated by you and for you - the tinkers, fixers and waste preventers of the UK!

Fixfest UK is aimed at people who are actively involved in community repair. That means folks who organise and/or volunteer at Restart Parties or Repair Cafes or any other fix-focused community events.

Space allowing, we'll allow observers and/or allies. Please email us if you fit this category: fixfest@therestartproject.org
