COMMUNITY REPAIR EVENTS

Details About Upcoming Events and Volunteering

"Folks who know how to fix things, getting together to help folks who don't, bringing broken things back to life."

 

 

Two Formats -- Fixit Clinics and Repair Cafés

The heart of both is fixing — community members come together to help each other repair what’s broken. Neither is a free repair service — they’re free participatory events. Participants work with volunteer fixers toward repairs. 

The differences? Fixit Clinics are explore-and-discover STEM workshops focused on learning through fixing. Repair Cafés are also concerned with developing social infrastructure and community resilience, so also host complementary activities related to repair, reuse and community well-being.

See The Vision for information about Community Repair Events and the differences and commonalities between Fixit Clinics, Repair Cafés and other formats.
