The Excerpts of Note || Atelier S P A C E pre-event
1 November, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmSGD45
GATHER WITH DK and a handful of guests in the conversation salon, ‘Excerpts of Note’ in Singapore on 1 November. You’ll get a chance to explore, offline, with others some of the less often-shared quotes, stories, and inspirations that we’ll invite each of you to bring to share. This is a self-selecting group, and a co-creation, made on the spot with the materials that come to hand. But we’ll bring prompts and activity-starters, too. This is a chance for you to try something new, in a Surrealist-inspired way. For example, we’ll share our nonlinear game, ‘Excerpts of Note’, and the art book (pictured below) that goes with it.
Your ticket comes with a PDF, ‘Excerpts of Note,’ from Design Kompany’s archive of our eZine S P A C E. This selection contains six interviews with creative people on their approaches to the process of making, doing, and sharing. Designers, developers, and artists share their stories in Q&A interviews like these. Read six exclusively-shared such ones from this special curation from the archives of our eZine S P A C E.
Also explore the ‘Excerpts of Note’ art book, pictured below. We’ll bring this collection along to the 1 November’s conversation salon. Guests at our London salon ‘Excerpts of Note’ had added parts to this. You’ll be invited to interact with it, too.
Max 8. Ages 18+.

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 >
