Readers, writers, designers, artists, curators, and publishers: this is S P A C E.
At this once-off event, you can meet Design Kompany and the friends here whom we have discovered while in Rīga for the last six weeks.
You’ll be able to: learn about self-publishing, and tap into DK’s 20+ years of writing and working independently. Ask questions. Discover. DK travels to cities of Southeast Asia and Northern Europe to make issues of the weekly mini-magazine, ‘S P A C E.’ This party is to launch the recently created new issues in our series. They are: S P A C E | Rīga, ‘Sunny Side of the Street,’ S P A C E | Rīga, ‘Drift,’ and S P A C E | Rīga, ‘The Weather Report.’ DK aims to create a safe, welcoming space for new and different others to connect & interconnect, one conversation at a time. This is the work of Atelier S P A C E, mini-parties, salons, installations, and our weekly magazine. As such, we’ll read from the the stories we’ve been writing and publishing since mid-April, which are set right here. Especially popular, so far, are: ‘Sn_wfall’ and ‘Love is Boring’. You’ll have a chance to read them.
Here is a light schedule for the evening…

I feel that in a world bombarded with images and noise, so many articulate, intelligent, and curious creative people are simply unable to discover each other.
I wanted to do something about that.
So, since 2014, I’ve been gathering people just like that by simply putting event ideas here, on Eventbrite. And ‘let’s just see what happens’ kind of jam sessions of extraordinary connexion somehow, from this intent, just… pop out and become real.
I love this.
New and different others crossing paths *by design*. I host. It’s fun.
For a short time.
In S P A C E.
