S P A C E || Make time for Real Life

6 December @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MYT


WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME you made time to show up and talk to someone you didn’t know, in real life, without a meeting appointment or an agenda? If you are interested, like we are, in showing up for something that you don’t know what it is yet, then come along and join us for S P A C E || Make time for Real Life. It will be a light, easygoing conversation limited to a very small circle of people. Please RSVP for the location details through this form. Free for co-hosts of Atelier S P A C E || Penang and their guests, or RM 40 per person. The theme for this is The Third Place, which is about a space between work and home, where people can meet, connect, converse, relax, and discover something. It’s a recurring thing, this one. So join us to find out more.

Notes: As this event is limited to just 6 seats, we are asking for advance bookings. Kindly RSVP before 6 December to register by email. (You can pay the registration fee on the day, in cash.)

*Secret location*


Design Kompany

What’s an ‘atelier?’

Design Kompany is hosting popup zinemaking ateliers. Before fancy academic schools for art and design came along, there were ateliers. An atelier is ‘a workshop or studio used by an artist or designer.’ These are places where you can meet new and different *others* to connection remarkable ways.

ATELIERS, APPRENTICESHIPS & ARTMAKING. Encouraging hands-on learning by doing, the hosts attended to the inner strengths of each participant. Apprentices came. Artworks were made and sold. We imagine artmaking was less commodity-focused (watch the film Posthumous, for a great comment on this) 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?
