Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands

Description

This is a special event in cooperation with VA SYD. Note the venue is the hip Garaget and we will have our mobile kit of tools to help you in repairing your favourite device, appliance, etc.

Don't be afraid to come with any device, though we have no special spare parts like iPhone-screens - but you can bring those spare parts and we assemble it together. We can't give any guarantee except that it's fun to repair together!

WANT TO HELP OUT?
We are a loose community of people that wants to help reducing the amount of electronic waste, loves to fix things and help others in doing that. There are a lot of things that we can learn from each other and we hope to have more helping hands, no matter what your skills are.

You are all always welcome! Just drop in to any event OR leave a message through facebook.

About the group

Repair Cafe Malmö

We have events mostly on Sunday afternoons at STPLN in Western Harbour, Garaget in Sofielund or other pop-up locations around Malmö. Like Restart, our aim is to fix with you, share knowledge, and learn more about repairing different devices. We focus right now primarily on electronics repair, but there are also general tools and sewing machines available to try any kind of repair!  

Fixa och fika med oss! Vårt mål är att sänka tröskeln för att reparera trasig elektronik och att sprida kunskap för att minska elektronikavfallet.

You have skills (or want to learn)?
We are a loose community of people that wants to help reduce the amount of electronic waste, love to fix things and help others repair. There are a lot of things that we can learn from each other and we hope to have more helping hands, no matter what your skills are. Maybe
 you simply like to help others and see their joy when the toaster works again, you love to organise fun events, or are a retired electrician, or you are looking to learn more about repairing. Send a message to [email protected] or drop by an event!
