Object Therapy will creatively repair, nay, transform people’s broken objects. 

Fix and Make are seeking participants to contribute a damaged or broken object to be transformatively repaired by a leading artist or designer. 

Participants will be interviewed about their object by a design researcher before and after transformation, as part of a collaboration between Fix and Make, ANU and UNSW to build a new body of knowledge around design and repair. 

Entries for participation close on Sunday 5 June. If you have a damaged or broken object and want to be part of this thought-provoking investigation into repair please apply here.
