Dispatchwork Amsterdam - Platform 21 Repair project

Platform21’s Repair Manifesto opposes throwaway culture and celebrates repair as the new recycling.

"With our project Platform21 = Repairing we seek to make repairing cool again – with your help. Let the manifesto inspire you, comment on it or add to it. Rediscover the joy of fixing things and share your most ingenious repair to compete in the Most Remarkable Repair contest.
In Platform21 the work of designers and artists inspires to repair your own possessions, which you can do in the different repair stations. And if you know of good repairpersons or master a forgotten technique, we ask you to share it with us.

This project is about sharing knowledge and skills. Together we can start a movement, one that isn’t new per se but has been forgotten. So if you know a way to save a product, let us know by emailing us." - http://www.platform21.nl/
