To help reduce our barriers to repair, today we are launching the beta version of our Repair Directory, a tool allowing users to quickly search for businesses based on location and type of device.
Building on work in East London, the aim is to discover as many relevant businesses as possible in three North London boroughs, collect data on them, and then develop and apply criteria for reliable businesses.
Tim hosts Restart Parties in greater Camden. He’s a “seasoned eco-worrier” who likes seeing people happy when they learn and get stuff repaired. He works four days a week at Haringey Council, and volunteers as well as working on personal projects.
Our favourite fixes from a very memorable year… We can’t wait for more in 2015. Including a boombox, some vintage kit, self laptop-repair and screen replacements.
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.
