Lifehack: A workshop

LEARN DESIGN KOMPANY’s top 4 tools to uncover the answer to a very important question:

What will be your legacy?

Get four top tools from our toolkit, which DK’s creative directors developed in-house over more than 10 years while working with different kinds of people and engaging with their unique learning styles.

Here is what you will get. A workbook from DK with our best-of collection of 4 modules, which each give you the spreadsheets, tools, and instructions we will work through together. You’ll be able to apply what you learn right away to manage and direct your career, make better-informed decisions, and look forward to the next steps with confidence. This is our agenda:

Module 1. Starting & Self (as seen in Bangkok)
Module 2. Finding Flow (as seen in Malmoe)
Module 3. The Chart & Choices (as seen in Siem Reap)
Module 4. The Plan
This will be in English. It is aimed at mid-career professionals. It’s for people who are interested in doing work they really care about, work that matters, work that will leave a true legacy. We’ve been working with people in Europe, N. America and Asia for 12 years, and we are ready to share the highlights of what we know works. This is a unique workshop where you can explore with others also interested in taking time to look at what work is personally important to each of us, and why. You’ll walk away with a 5-word ‘self-concept,’ and a professionally-worded summary statement. Useful for resumes, especially when looking to work abroad. This is designed and hosted by Design Kompany’s Dipika Kohli (TEDx, ‘There’s Not That Much Time Left’).

Your ticket includes lunch, tea, and snacks. Lunch will be a Khmer meal, served family-style.

ABOUT DESIGN KOMPANY. DK started in 2006 in Seattle, USA, working with discerning architects, software developers, artists, and other process-oriented people to design or redesign their brand identities (Capitol Hill Chamber, Baltic Room, NW Asian Weekly). Since arriving in Phnom Penh in 2014, DK branded NUK Cafe, and took on several ad hoc projects to get people thinking more clearly about how to clarify goals so as to optimize for the right metrics. ‘Lifehack’ is part of a fall series of workshops and programmes in S P A C E, an online community that meets regularly in destinations around Asia. Find out more about that here.

Rooftop Philosophy in Phnom Penh #7

How we met…

MAYBE WE JUST met, yesterday at the restaurant playing a game of cards. Or a design conversation, or I found you on the internet and emailed you to say hello. You might have met one of our team members out and about in Phnom Penh, over the course of 2014-now. Or a jazz show: I like these, and there seem to be a very small circle of us who go to the ones that happen. When they do. Did we meet over coffee somewhere in Toul Kork? Did we find one another at a meetup? I want to enjoy hosting a space this THURSDAY that, you might find, to be quite unexpected (read nothing like a boring meetup). The idea is to *mix together* a small handful of people whose paths we have been crossing, through *serendipity and randomness* and just being around, and *get us together*… but briefly, and once. It’s part of the Rooftop Phil. in PP series, but interestingly, in 6 salons so far only 1 person has joined more than once. That’s why I’m inviting *only* people I’ve met *since* the last one… half a year ago.

Are you on?

Nomad life of artist-wanderers

FOUND THIS.
In 1996 Michael Haerdter of Berlin’s Künstlerhaus Bethanien called artists “post-modern nomads” or “wanderers between cultures”.  He said, in a presentation in Dublin, that migrating artists “belong with the many transcultural messengers of a world whose keywords are nomadism and globalism.”Goes on to say the fact that we see the invention (and spreading about) of residential art centers relates to the need of artists “to experience the world and its many environments and cultures, to realise in situ research and projects, to be temporarily part of creative communities, and to profit from the opportunity they offer for exchanging ideas and know-how.”
The author of the article says that 15 years after his presentation, Haerdter’s observations on nomadic artists and residencies retain “their poetic resonance,” pointing out how it’s now far easier and more common to move around. Such mobility is “an essential element of any professional artist’s career,” it continues, adding the usual things about how it’s hard to keep things relevant and economically viable in the culture of transitions. How justifying one’s value becomes a thing that has to happen, too. But why? And how? And to whom? These are some of my personal questions… Of which there are more…

A little free S P A C E

QUESTIONS. What is the value of seeking, exploring, and discovering new and different ways of thinking? What do we mean by ‘value’? Let’s converse about the role of the artist in society, and other kinds of meandering discussions, in S P A C E. More for those who are just joining us, when you add your name to this list…
