The Restart Project encourages and empowers people to use their electronics longer. They hold pop-up events once a month in Brixton and in Camden, but also give talks including at universities and conduct workshops - including this weekend at the Sunday Market!
This is what they say about themselves and why they started out a year ago;
- Watching people discarding devices because they ran “slow”.
- Watching people upgrade by simply buying new phones every nine months.
- We started asking ourselves: have we become passive consumers of technology? Have we lost our “repair muscle mass”?
- What was troubling us more and more was not actually injustice and struggles of the “underdeveloped” places we worked in, but instead the attitudes and behaviours of people here back in our northern homes.
- We have worked cumulatively for 15 years in places where communications technology can make a massive difference – where simple mobile phones can often literally save lives in everyday situations. And we’ve seen that people relate with gadgets and technology in a completely different way in most of the places we worked – people have a greater sense of control and ownership over technology and a resilience in the face of problems. Everything is hackable and fixable.
