Makeflix is a creative repair project that enables people to reconnect with their waste and build an awareness about consumption behaviours, the environment and wellbeing.
The project is a collaborative community that is formed by a group of international members from diverse disciplines. Makeflix aims to make repair an aspiration and encourages more people from different walks of life to keep items in their life for longer and to be more mindful of their consumption. We use ‘a playful approach to trash’ to nudge participants of the community to think and take action on larger issues.
“Makeflix enables people to creatively connect with themselves, their surrounding, their community and the environment through waste, repurposing and repair.”
