The Fixer's Manifesto (because everyday practical problem solving is the most beautiful form of creativity there is)
The Fixer's Manifesto: Fixing is the unsung hero of creativity. And it really shouldn’t be. It’s the most common, humble and beautiful form of creativity. Let’s wear that belief proudly. Let’s notice and celebrate these little everyday triumphs, and help others see their value. We made this to fuel the conversation about why a culture of fixing is so important.
