Liverpool 2020: Festival of Maintenance

The Festival of Maintenance 2020 has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown. We will instead be hosting virtual events throughout the year.

Don’t miss our first Free Virtual Event: The Gig Economy, A Precarious Form of Maintenance

The 2020 Festival will take place on Saturday 10th October in Liverpool. Get in touch if you’d like to help as a volunteer, or are interested in sponsoring the event.

You can find the complete 2019 Festival, with all the speakers and sessions, in video form on YouTube.

We’re also thinking about keeping the conversations about maintenance going between Festivals, perhaps with online talks or discussions. Would you participate in these? Are there speakers or topics or formats you’d like to see? Let us know! We’re thinking about topics including maintenance and climate change, design and maintenance, technical debt, community maintenance, and right to repair.

The Festival team chat and come up with ideas in a Slack group chat; you’re welcome to join us there. We’re also building a list of useful maintenance-themed resources – it’s an “Awesome” list on GitHub, and is easy to edit – you’re welcome to contribute.

Best wishes for 2020,
The Festival of Maintenance team
