Pre-start Atelier S P A C E || Bangkok
See if this sounds like you…
Bored with working solo? Finding the forced community frameworks of coworking, working, school, societal programs, weird expectations imposed on you, and even home to be stifling? Looking for a place to connect, converse, and discover new ideas with people you might not usually interact with? And does the idea of real life conversations over e-communications sound refreshing? If yes, if this is resonating, then we invite you to take part In Atelier S P A C E. Meet new people. Make a zine. Hosted by DK. See what making space can reveal to you about… You. Limited seats. Advance bookings only. For the Atelier S P A C E || Bangkok full Programme 6-10 March, you can register at eventbrite. But for this pre-event Programme, simply join S P A C E.
What’s an ‘atelier?’
An atelier is a workshop or studio used by an artist or designer. Design Kompany’s ateliers are hosted by Akira Morita and Dipika Kohli.
ATELIERS, APPRENTICESHIPS & ARTMAKING. Design Kompany is hosting popup zinemaking ateliers. Before fancy academic schools for art and design came along, there were ateliers. Encouraging hands-on learning by doing. Apprentices came. Artworks were made and sold. DK imagine artmaking was less commodity-focused* and more about the experience. And for those seeking training, it wasn’t about, one might guess, the expensive tuition fees that come with ho-hum professors (jaded people who’ve forgotten the meaning of their occupation—here I recommend Art School Confidential). Perhaps it was about the magic, if I let myself be uncool and optimistic, of Art. What it can do. How it connects us, across time, and distance. Let’s *make* something. Let’s play? View gallery >
