A little about ourselves
**UPDATE** The Melbourne Repair Cafe (Inner West) ceased running monthly repair session in October 2019. No further sessions are planned unless and until a new group of wonderful humans steps up to take on the role of coordinating, promoting and managing the sessions.
The MRC has been one of the thousand+ repair cafes around the world who are registered with the Repair Cafe Foundation (based in the Netherlands).
Initially one of five repair cafes (registered with the International Repair Foundation) when launched in February 2016, we have supported other communities to set up their own initiative through the sharing of our learnings and resources. Since then, repair cafes have been set up across metropolitan and regional Victoria and throughout Australia.

Free monthly repair cafe sessions were held at the Yarraville Community Centre and have previously been run from venues in Melbourne's inner west, including at community houses and local cafes..
