FixFest 2022

Mark Phillips Events, News October 14, 2022 2 Comments

International FixFest was held in Brussels from 30 September to 2 October 2022. Delegates from around the world met in on-line and in person at Les Ateliers des Tanneurs to strengthen the community repair movement, share best practice and articulate demands for more repairable products.

It was organised by The Restart Project, in close collaboration with Belgian partners Repair Together and Repair & Share. I photographed the events throughout the weekend, including the protest outside Apple.

I do not use anything special. Simply WordPress, with Royal Theme for website. I do not use any additional tools or plug-ins for blogging. My advice – start simple.
