Fixfest is just 6 weeks away and we couldn’t be more excited! From sessions about repairing in our communities, the Right to Repair and repair in education to practical repair workshops, there will be something for everyone. We’ve just released Fixfest tickets, so keep reading to learn how to get yours today. But first, here’s a quick look at how the programme is shaping up…
> Fixfest weekend, 1-2 Oct
The main days of Fixfest will be Saturday the 1st and Sunday the 2nd of October. We’re planning a jam-packed weekend of community-focused workshops, presentations and discussions, many of which will be suggested and run by attendees. We’ve already had some fantastic submissions from community repair experts and enthusiasts from around the world.
Most sessions will fall into one of four main themes:
- Repairing in our communities
- The Right to Repair around the world
- Repair in education
- How to repair… [practical repair workshops]
On the evening of Friday the 30th of September, we’re organising a small social event for anyone who arrives early. And on Saturday, we’re also planning a number of online sessions for those who can’t join in person.
There will be plenty of opportunities for informal conversations across the weekend, particularly on Sunday. We’ll then finish on Sunday with a public repair café in the afternoon – repairers welcome!
> European Right to Repair Campaign @Fixfest, 30 Sep
If you enjoy the nitty-gritty of EU policy, you’re in luck too! The steering group of the European Right to Repair Campaign are putting together a fascinating morning of sessions on Friday the 30th of September exploring how EU policies can be instrumental in overcoming barriers to repair.
