Ta-da! You’ll receive your own printed copy of our completed, co-created 8-page zine, S P A C E || Singapore.
You will be able to read and share this piece, in a cozy, intimate and quiet venue (we’re very excited to discover this space!). We’ll also invite a few people to join us from 8PM for a zine launch party. Bring your friends, and other +1’s.
We will host an impromptu converastion salon about what we did together, and how it felt, and what we learned.

Relax, enjoy, converse, and connect. DK will also share zines from past ateliers hosted in London, Bangkok, and Phnom Penh.
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 >
