This is an editorial introduction to a special issue of Axon: Creative Explorations, with the theme ‘On the Mend’ responding not only to global events over
2020/21, but to the many ways the worlds in which we now live might be in need of mending, and to broader themes in creative practice and scholarship that centre the topics of care, repair, breakage and their entanglement. Each work creatively explores, challenges and responds to this broad but resonant theme. What emerged as key to all of the contributions was the importance of relationships – whether they be with place, objects, the state, other individuals or the self – to the health, maintenance, and well-being (or not) that we perceive as integral indicators of breakage, care and repair.
