Description

This 7-week project-based course, led by Milan Tanedjikov, the founder of LIGNES DE DUITE, integrates fiction, discursive design, creative writing, image creation, graphic design, and publishing. With 6 to 8 participants, the online course aims to teach you how to craft compelling narratives that challenge expectations and foster reflection on contemporary societal issues. The course places a strong emphasis on hands-on experience, guiding participants through the process of making and printing unique 12-page zine. This zine not only represents an impression of your viewpoint of the END but also catalyzes your future idea development and designs. At the culmination of this 7-week journey, participants will not only possess an understanding of discursive ideation methodologies but will also hold in their hands a professionally crafted zine. By publishing it at the 'LIGNES DE FUITE vol. 4' launch at the END of May, participants will have the opportunity to share their vision with a broader audience, bridging the gap between their imagination and reality.
