Rosie the Restarter Skillshare - Repair videos screening
Having identified gender balance as a challenge in our pool of volunteers, we organise skillshares run by/for women and non-binary people. They create a space to share skills, boost confidence and get technical together. These are designed to be a fun way to learn and increase volunteer gender diversity at our community Restart Parties. Let's get together nibble and have some drinks and watch women and non-binary people fixing and tearing down electronic devices. Please don't hesitate to suggest videos you think might be cool to watch; we will curate them before the evening. While MOST repair videos online are by men, there are a couple of amazing women repairers and remakers sharing their skills online. We are going to celebrate them! We'll make up a watchlist out of what we find. Unfortunately this space has no step free access due to faulty lift and ongoing works (getting the spare parts for the old model of lift seem to be a challenge). The office is located on the 5th floor of the building.

What we're about

Public Group

Restarters are people who like helping other learn how to fix broken electronics and electricals - anything with a battery or that plugs in - with a few exceptions for safety, like microwaves.

Restarters have diverse skills. Some help with basic electrical fixing involving changing fuses and plugs. Others deal with software issues on laptops and mobiles. What unites Restarters is the love of a repair challenge and their collaborative approach. Join us, make a difference, help empower people by teaching repair, and reduce e-waste.

The Restart Project promotes community self-repair events for Restarters called "Restart Parties" in greater Camden and Brixton. In other communities in London, other organisations host - we will indicate the hosts for events.

Please note that children are more than welcome at Restart Parties, but only when accompanied by their guardians.

If you would like to reach out to more people by hosting your own Restart Party, write us at community@therestartproject.org
