BRAVE FIXED WORLD Seminar Day

BRAVE FIXED WORLD
Seminar Day – Sunday 12th October 2014 – 10am to 3pm

Programme outline
Making is something most of us can do but many of us don’t. Although this was not the case in the
past. One of the most substantial forms of making is fixing. Both in day to day and in extremely
complicated situations, fixing through making is one of humanity’s most precious resources.
Each session will include 10 minute introduction by the chair and 15 minutes from each contributor
followed by a panel and audience conversation.
