A R T of the Z I N E
20 November @ 2:00 pmUSD $15
IN PHNOM PENH? DK invite you to our ‘Art of the Z I N E’ event this Tuesday afternoon in PP*. Designed for the self-employed, full-time practicing artists, it’s a chance for us to get to know one another as well as see how we might be able to work on something in the future together, too.
CONTEXT. In Seattle we had hosted a 2-year series called ‘Designers Korner,’ but it was an evening session. Learning from that, we wanted to bring the conversations more to the daylight space of actually working on things, actually co-creating. In December we’ll launch the Phnom Penh-focused zine, ‘Angle of Incidence.’ That will happen by invitation only through our opt-in mailing list (join us here: http://tinyurl.com/spacethezine).
If this sound interesting, *join us on Tuesday.
. Ask questions.
. Make something.
. Chat with us in real life.
Next stop is KL next week. Then Singapore. Then, the World. 🙂
Zines. Conversation. Real life.
DK and friends are gathering for ‘Atelier S P A C E’, a ‘zinemaking’ workshop, in PP. No prior experience necessary, ages 16+.
What are ‘zines?’ ‘Zines’ (xeroxed short publications we make ourselves and give our friends) give us a tangible grip on the *here and now*, and remind us that at the end of the day, *we* get to create and write our own stories. The stories of our lives, the stories that remind us who we are. Atelier S P A C E | Cambodia is inspired by our summer event series in Finland, where people gathered to talk, eat, and share with each other while making something with our hands. Zines in this case. Also influenced by the Swedish concept ‘fika.’
What we’ll do. You’ll put together your own 8-page zine. You’ll get a ‘zine kit’ from DK and we’ll show you how to put your own ‘zine’ together. Bring something that you have at home if you’d like to use it, too. Magazines, pictures, snippets of writing, something that you drew, a special paper stock, a piece of fabric, a printed photograph: all are good pieces to work with. Content may be images, text or pieces of a small story. You can also bring your own seasonal periodicals, newspapers and craft supplies like scissors.
‘Third place’. In community building, the third place is the social surroundings separate from the two usual social environments of home (“first place”) and the workplace (“second place”). Examples of third places would be environments such as cafes, public libraries, gyms, or parks. In his influential book The Great Good Place, Ray Oldenburg (1989, 1991) argues that third places are important for civil society, democracy, civic engagement, and establishing feelings of a sense of place.
