S P A C E | SELF 2019
4 March, 2019 @ 8:00 AM - 19 March, 2019 @ 5:00 PM$225
GET SELF: A NEW 12-STEP ONLINE WORKSHOP hosted 1:1 by DK’s creative director Dipika Kohli. DK was a brand consulting studio in Seattle and Raleigh-Durham, NC, for ten years before moving into boutique consulting in design thinking regionally in Southeast Asia. This course is designed based on conversations that have emerged following Kohli’s TEDx talk, ‘There’s Not That Much Time Left.’ Watch it here.
The 2019 track is by invitation.
WHO SHOULD APPLY. If you are in a period of limbo, if you are in transition, if you have just come out of something or are about to head into a new phase, SELF is a good course for you. If you have been through some difficulty or a change, or something has pushed you to question your own goals, vision, mission and values, then SELF is an excellent tool. If you are questioning the goals and methods that you have or are using, then SELF is ideal for you to re-evaluate and confirm your personal values are aligned with what you are doing and making at work.
‘Overcome my fear of writing’
I AM WRITING because I wanted to thank you all for sharing ideas and memoirs, I am very much impressed and really enjoyed the workshop [SELF]. I’ve been working on my writing, and finished one short story which I feel so happy after I finished writing it (it’s in Thai.) I’m working on its English version pretty soon and will send to you all for the feedback. Bottom line is I’m happy to let you know that I’ve somehow overcome my fear of writing, though there’re times when I got stuck with the stories, get distracted, or feel like it’s not good enough – if it was before, I was just going to give up. Now, I feel it challenged me and I find writing more enjoyable. Most importantly, I feel like my writing is getting better too. –J. Lee, guest of SELF | Bangkok, 2014
WHY DK. Sometimes doing the work of looking inwards can be easier when framed in this way, through questions, and questions that come from, say, someone that isn’t close to you. Someone who isn’t going to have a judgment about how you answer. Someone whom you might not ever meet in real life. What if you could find a space for a conversation that was happening, but didn’t involve oversharing, or having to divulge a lot of details about the self, because it was set up, designed you could say, to be more or less a space for you, as the person playing the game, to spend time talking with mostly, yourself. What might you discover? Design Kompany has worked with more than 500 clients in Europe, Asia, and both coasts of N. America to develop this 12-step toolkit of ways and means to discover the essence of you. (See ‘Who’ section above for more about that.)
