It’s been three years since the global repair community gathered in Berlin for the last international Fixfest. Now we’re delighted to announce that Fixfest is making a return. This time, we’ll meet in Brussels
On Friday the 30th of September, the focus will be on the Right to Repair, with sessions exploring how policy can make repair easier, cheaper and more accessible. This will be followed by a weekend of more community-focused workshops and sessions, many of which will be suggested and run by attendees.
If you’d like to suggest and/or run a session yourself, we’d love to hear from you by the 11th of August! Just hit the button below

This year’s edition is being organised by The Restart Project in close collaboration with our Belgian partners Repair Together and Repair & Share. We’ll share more details and opportunities to get involved soon. But in the meantime, be sure to save the date and start thinking about travel:
30 September - 02 October, 2022
Brussels, Belgium (we hope to run an online track too)
For those who would like to come but might struggle with the financial commitment, We have an extremely limited number of bursaries available to enable people to travel to Brussels for Fixfest. These are only available in exceptional cases and are primarily for people based outside of Europe. Alternatively, we can provide letters of support to assist with your own funding applications. Please send me a message if you’re interested in learning more about this.
Fixfest is a global gathering for repairers and tinkerers, community organisers, activists, policy-makers, thinkers, and companies who are interested in fixing things. It’s a chance for all of us to meet, share stories, experiences and skills, as well as organise and strengthen our networks.
The first Fixfest was in London in 2017 followed by Berlin in 2019. This third edition will take place in Brussels.
