Reasons to fix and to support our community fixing

Earlier this year, Restarters and participants at a Restart Party in Camden shared why they love our events. (Three UCL Material Cultures masters students facilitated, and talented photographer Heather Agyepong took these photos.)

We’re in the final push of our December fundraising campaign, help us keep these moments going.

“In most cases fixing means helping to me. Helping is important to leap boundaries between family and friends and maybe (like here) to help the community -> to build community”

“What fixing means to me. I like to fix things because often people says ‘it’s not worth repairing’ which means there is not enough profit in it for them. Also, I haven’t got enough money at the moment to replace things that break down, so I want to repair them instead, or even build new ones from scratch.”
