Lecture Title: Repair on the Move

People across the globe are increasingly relocating away, physically and metaphorically, from their ‘place’ in their respective broken modern worlds. What cultures of repair will move with them? What cultures of repair already exist where they’re going? What is there to repair? In this lecture, I explore the near future 'repair knowledge transfer gaps' that will likely be afforded by repair on the move. I will discuss the opportunities these gaps provide when thinking about repair as a decolonising act that mitigates the violence of coloniality. After providing some background context, I will share some vignette alternative future narratives. In critical design practice, we call these stories design fictions.
