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. Here are pictures of what we've hosted, so far.

What is Design Thinking?
30 MayFree - $12
LISTEN TO this interview Victor Jimenez, a seasoned entrepreneur and popular podcaster, did with DK’s own Akira Morita. The two are close friends, and talk regularly across the world about topics related to performance, learning, being better, and growth.
Design thinking? It’s about what problem are you solving, and for whom. You can listen to the full story, ‘Using Design Thinking in your Business,’ which has already been recorded and uploaded at The Flywheel Podcast at this page: http://victorjimenez.co/tfp-003-using-design-thinking-in-your-business/
Today in S P A C E we’ll discuss. In a parallel conversation that may also take place on this day, we’ll open the comments for the topic of, ‘What is Design Thinking,’ on the comments pages below. Possibly also on facebook, depending on interest there.
Check in on 30 May throughout the day [ICT timezone], to see what’s unfolding. #designthinking
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?
