Cojournal || A Nomadic Existence
7 May @ 8:00 am - 7 July @ 5:00 pm$65 - $160
‘WHERE ARE YOU GOING?’ The question. It comes. Naturally. People want to know where you are docking, finding a port. Safe harbors, the people we find in them (and the ones we find missing), and all kinds of other conversations on movement, ahead. A conversation that happens online in a protected-page forum. By invitation only. A repeating online salon for 2018, as we continue to develop conversations in S P A C E with new and different others. To relate. To grow. To share, to connect. This 8-week sequence of The Cojournal Project is for just 4 people. Application required (find the application form, below). Cojournal Project started in 2014 and closed in 2015. These new short form forum-spaces allow us to connect with a few new guests just discovering DK, in a meaningful way. If we’re lucky, we will discover something about ourselves and the things that we ambiently know, together. (Jung, et al). Perfect for those on the move, or who want to be, soon. Apply here:
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 >
