A Repair Café is a meeting in which people repair household, electrical and mechanical devices, computers, bicycles, clothing, etc. The concept of the Repair Café was devised by Martine Postma in 2009 and the first Repair Café was held at Fijnhout Theater, Amsterdam-West. On Wednesday Aug 14th 2019 a Repair Café event will be happening at the 240 Hub from 3:30-6:30 pm.
The 240 Hub Repair Café is an event in which neighbours help neighbours fix broken household items. Volunteers will help repair your small appliances, home electronics and general housewares. Community members will also learn how to fix their household items. The event is free for everyone and everyone is welcome to attend. The event is organized by Tool Library, CAAM United Hardware and The Corner.
The Repair Café will be a great opportunity for volunteers to share their skills with the community as well as for the community to gain more skills on how to fix household items. The event will also help community members get to know about the many activities and initiatives at the 240 Hub.
