We visited the London Bike Kitchen – a very special DIY Bike Repair Workshop in east London. We had felt a certain kinship with this project for a long time. What is for “sale” is empowerment, community and resilience.
This guest post is by Barcelona-based researcher Blanca Callén, who spent a week with The Restart Project. Read more about her ethnographic research on informal processing of electronic waste.
A journalist asked us the other day what our “best repairs” have been, and what makes us proudest about The Restart Project. The best repairs help participants lose their fear, or help volunteers realise how to help others.
