A partcipatory activity at Sauna building close to Oranssi.
The purpose of the event is to inform and engage with the community at large and re-asses our perceptions about ownership, civil engagement and responsible consumption. The event is open to everyone, free of charge and the people participating are encouraged to bring their own clothes and things to repair, mend or up-cycle as well as to discuss about future exchanges and engagements with the project.
With continuing the legacy of the Trashlabs the Repair! event will be dedicated to repairing, fixing and mending, but also to contemplating the history and legacy of the past Trashlab events, while envisioning a new path forwards. It will be focused on establishing a wider community of repairers, tinkerers, fixers, hackers and the wider interested public and in threading new webs and connections while sparking meaningful conversations.
