We established our in-house think-and-do tank, FixEd, to explore creative education as it relates to breaking technologies and future needs. We conceived of FixCamp as a programme which would challenge young people to use their creativity and ingenuity applied to the biggest problems of today: Housing, Education, Transport and Living Together. The Royal Academy of Engineering funded it and we delivered it in South London to 300 children in the summer of 2018, who used leather and sticks, laser cutters and 3-d printers to bring their ideas to life.
Everything was done in house, including concept, development, production, logistics and delivery. It stands as one of the most worthwhile things we’ve done.

WHAT WE DO
We’ve curated exhibitions, delivered activity programmes and publications, and shaped the purpose and identity of the organisations and institutions that house them.
Facing uncertain futures, we’ve been speculating about cities and high streets, museums and shops, communities, work and education.
We’ve designed workshops and facilitated conversations, enabling big, complex and/or diverse groups of people articulate and shape their ideas
We create tools, formats and programmes, that motivate and inspire learners to unlock their potential and shift their horizons
