The Future of Fixing, exhibition, public talks programme and open source resource
The Lodz Design Festival asked us to propose and produce an exhibition and public talks programme to explore future trends in design. The exhibition was seen by 45,000 festival goers in 2014 and proved a hit on blogs worldwide, as it considered how individuals and communities might wrestle back control of the lives of their things.
A number of international venues wanted to tour the exhibition; we came up with the idea of making the complete exhibition available online. In this way anyone could take and adapt the format for themselves. In 2016 this happened, with locally relevant versions of the exhibition opening in Machines Room in London, the Center for Craft Creativity and Design in North Carolina and Barcelona. The files are still available on GitHub and we hope will continue to be adapted, hacked and used as inspiration for into the future.

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
