My name is David, I’m a retired engineer, and I’m looking for like-minded people to help me organise and run a Restart party.
This is a quote from the Restart website: https://therestartproject.org/RestartParty/
A Restart Party is a free community event where volunteers help people fix their own broken electricals and electronics, to save them from waste and change our relationship with electronics.
Any group can throw a Restart Party anywhere. To throw your own Restart Party, we ask that you stick to a couple of simple guidelines.
1. Offer free entry to the public, although a donation can be suggested 2. Promote a collaborative learning process 3. Fix other stuff like bikes if you like but you’ll need at least 3-4 electronics repairers. 4. Communicate your party to The Restart Project in advance and share the results 5. Be insured! The Restart Project is not liable for events we do not organise. If uninsured, please work in partnership with a group that is.
If you are interested, please let me know - the next step will probably be a meeting (in a pub?) to find out what skills we have between us, and to start thinking about where we could hold the event, and when.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
For those who were wondering, Mottle was the family cat, and I fed it.
