A film became a learning programme became a think tank
In 2012, in the wave of energy and attention that Power of Making exhibition at the V&A museum generated, Daniel Charny and James Carrigan (Sugru) put together a min-project to make some films demonstrating how immediate ‘fixes’ could apply design thinking in the real world. 5 films were made, telling the stories of designers going through a human centred design process and using new tools and technologies to generate one off custom fixes for day to day challenges.
This was the beginning of Fixperts, now being run in a school or university near you. Fixperts has resisted categorisation, and often management, and ultimately needed its own home. From Now On conceived and developed a think-and-do tank which could house Fixperts, its sister programme FixCamp, and engage in research and support for educators and activists in the UK and internationally. This home grown project has helped us think more broadly and hone our skills in developing and sustaining content, formats and relationships through time.

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
