with True Story Theater
Thursday, July 11, 7:30 - 8:45 pm
Robbins Library, Community Room, Arlington Center
Join other members of Arlington and surrounding communities for an evening of entertainment around the theme of what happens next when stuff we use breaks. Does it have to be thrown out? Can it be fixed? Who can repair it? Bring your stories of success, frustration and failure with fixing things and discover the different ways that an improv/playback theater troupe can present them.

2. Fix-It Clinic
with Sustainable Arlington, Sustainable Belmont, Robbins Library, Arlington Recycles and the Arlington Zero Waste Committee
(tools and repair experience providedby our Fix-It Coachs)
Sunday, July 14, 1-4 pm
Thompson School Gym, 187 Everett St., East Arlington
Building resilient communities through conveying basic troubleshooting skills and celebrating repair, Fixit Clinics are do-it-together hands-on fix-n-learn community-based exploration and discovery workshops staffed by volunteer Fixit Coaches who generously share their time, tools and expertise to consult with you on the disassembly, troubleshooting, and repair of items.
So bring your broken, non-functioning things -- electronic gadgets, appliances, computers, toys, sewing machines, bicycles, fabric items, etc.-- for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. Fixit Coaches (and helpful neighbors) will be available for consultation on broken items: we'll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you disassemble and troubleshoot your item. Whether you fix it or not, you'll learn more about how it was manufactured and how it worked, ready to share your new-found confidence and insight with your friends, neighbors, and the community at large. (Hopefully you’ll be inspired to become a Fixit Coach yourself.)
