The Excerpts of Note || Atelier S P A C E pre-event
1 November @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm ICTSGD45
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+.
Book your ticket here.

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?
