Intergalactic Zoom Fixit Clinics bring the world’s greatest troubleshooting talent together to address whatever’s presented. Here’s how it works: show your broken item to the global assembly of community repairers and get suggestions for things to try. After all items are presented we assign items/participants and repairers to Zoom breakout rooms to implement the suggestions and, hopefully, fix the items.
This Fixit Clinic is hosted by Repair Cafe Lund and Circle Centre Lund in Sweden. Circle Centre will briefly present their work with in Lund with a library of things and educational events and collaboration with repair organisations.
GOT SOMETHING BROKEN? In addition to “carry-in items” we can look at big things like dishwashers, TVs and furniture now. Sign up with things to fix at http://bit.ly/fixitcheckin.
FIXERS: All community repairers worldwide are heartily invited to participate, either to help fix or just observe, learn and cross-train. Sign up well in advance at http://bit.ly/fixitcoachsignup. (Your local area / local repair group is welcome to be featured/spotlighted; we’ll add information specific to your group/locale to both the participant and fixer registration pages so you can promote locally while we promote globally.)
