CIRCUIT by Antwerp Circular South
Short description
To become a circular citizen you need to have an ecosystem that facilitates your life. A place where you can share, repair, lease or have a designer to redesign your old chair into the perfect dresser for your daughter. A place where you can rethink the way you do things and have a drink and a bite doing so. We launch CIRCUIT! The circularity centre that offers all those services and more!

On October 2nd the locals of New South are invited for a sneak preview of the location. On October 4th the city will vibrate with the formal opening celebration of the temporarily location.

Circuit opens its doors with smart workshops like: how to pimp your bike´or re-use workshops ´making wicked wrappings and solid bags´. The citizens can also bring their broken electric household machines and have them repaired.
The materials library will also kick off. It’s the place where you can lease tools and machines for regular reparations atyour home, or all party articles you need to throw a cool party. No need to buy your own stuff anymore.
Meanwhile we´re in the last phase of finalising the agreement to buy a permanent location for Circuit.
