What makes the organisation unique?
FIX in Art is a social creative cultural hub, that is a social experiment of horizontal governance at the same time. What makes them unique is how they are combining different topics, we have a fluid framework, based on the needs of our surroundings, we don't practice art for the sake of art, but art and creativity for social change.
They believe that creativity and access to art and holistic education is a human right and not a luxury. The centre practices inclusion in every aspect of our programming and within our coliving community. They learn via their mistakes, and errors, (and they make a lot of those ) , and they hold space for people that wish to join our initiative, sharing knowledge, energy and resources.
