fixperts: fixing is a way of thinking

fixFixperts is quite simply about helping people, quickly. The project is at prototype/pilot phase, but is already helping a lot of people. Using “fixing” as a way of thinking, the idea is to inject a little design process into resolving everyday problems, difficulties, obstacles. People, they say, aren’t in the habit of fixing anymore. A service for everything has led to an inability, and sometimes a lack of faith in individual capacity, to find solutions. With an emphasis on process the fixperts aim to demonstrate the impact of design in an hour and half, and by filming this process they are able to create resources for education and perhaps a pathway towards a “can do” society that learns to fix again. Fix films is the resource to watch…you might want to make one yourself!
