“Garbage” – is that what you call your broken things? Wouldn’t you rather call them “your bicycle”, “your speakers” or “your favorite dress” once again?
If the phrase “to throw something out” or a continuous state of “being broken” isn’t really your thing – welcome! Repair Cafe is a place where concepts like that do not exist.
TOSS IT? NO WAY!
When and where?
Repair Cafe takes place (approximately) every two months in Rīga.
The next Repair Cafe takes place on Saturday 20 February 2016, from 16:00-18:00 at Kaņepes Kultūras Centrs (Skola iela 15, Rīga).
We can always use people who are handy with a hammer, electronics, knitting needles, bicycles, etc. We kindly invite people with useful skills and a desire to share to let us know, so we can cooperate in the future. So if you or somebody you know fits this description – don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
You can also contact us on this address to get more specific information and ask for help, since, just like things – every problem can and will be fixed!

A little bit of history
Repair Cafe is an initiative that first started in The Netherlands in 2009. Over the years, it became a global success – there are now almost 1000 Repair Cafe communities worldwide.
homo ecos: organized the first Latvian Repair Cafe in 2013. After a brief silent period, Repair Cafe was revitalized in 2015, and will hopefully continue to exist for a very, very long time.
