10 November, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

SGD180

7PM-8PM
National Gallery 
The Opening Reception 
*Secret meetpoint*
You’ll meet your hosts, A. Spaice and Dipika Kohli of Design Kompany and Kismuth Books, and your fellow participating guests.

8PM-9PM
The Arts House
Speculative Fiction Open Mic
Here is when we may move over as a group, or partial group, to catch the Speculative Fiction Open Mic at the not-too-far Arts House. We will be speculative, and decide together, in the moment. This atelier  programme is all about S P A C E-making, so that means a fluidity in how the evening plan moves. It’s very fun, and freeing, to do what you wanna do when you feel like doing it. (PS, S P A C E looks like this.)

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 >
