As summer draws to a close, we think about the role of tech in our experience of the ‘Great Outdoors’. Taking a look at the useful, the useless, and the DIY, we think about how current consumer trends in camping and outdoor gear reflect the complicated nature of our desire to ‘get away from it all’.
Today, we talk to Rob Kerr from Lovefone – an independent mobile repair store – about the relationship between manufacturers and repairers.
Our friend, Buenos Aires repair activist, designer Marina Pla to help us come up with a visual identity to match our excitement about Fixfest. This is an open and reusable identity, reflecting the challenges of repair.
Three days, four venues, only one Fixfest. We’re excited to announce our venues for our first ever global gathering of community repair!
Tickets will be going live in mid-August – free to activists in our network and for sale for the public. If you want to know the minute they do, leave us your details at the link below and we’ll be in touch.
