On May 21-22 Living Lab Fabriken organises a “Vårstädning” (spring-cleaning) with a special focus on Re-use, Re-Pair, Re-claim. Participants are welcome to fix their clothes, gadgets, bikes, or whatever they would like to work on. They are encouraged to build new stuff from old material, re-design, try out various kinds of techniques, and exchange skills, experiences, and knowledge with the Fabriken community.
Facilities, machines, and tools are provided by Fabriken. The participants bring their project ideas, visions, and materials. What will happen is actually all up to the attendants. They decide what topics to work on, and how to do it. Fabriken provides the site and the framework. Besides working on their own projects participants are also welcome to join a number workshops organised by local actors.
