During a workshop participants make multiple curiosities – small, conceptual projects – centred around a specific (desired) topic. A range of short assignments (pressure-cooker format) help them in questioning the topic, and finding new interpretations.

在工作坊期间,参与者将利用自己的好奇心创作很多的作品——从一个特定的主题延展的概念性的小项目。在强压下创作出一系列作品的方式,让他们可以提出很多与主题相关的问题,并找到新的传达方式。

During a 2, 3 or 5-day workshop participants make several curiosities (small conceptual projects). By doing so we question and challenge existing interpretations of a certain theme or topic, in search of dialogue, new connections, new interpretations and new points of view. Most importantly, we introduce a way of thinking which can be incorporated in future projects.

A workshop consists of multiple short assignments (the so called ‘pressure-cooker format’) about curiosity and amazement. The brief and restrictions of an assignment are different each time in order to make the workshop fit well to a certain theme, goal or educational program.

2 – 5天的工作坊期间,参与者将利用自己的好奇心创作很多的作品(概念性的小项目)。我们从一个特定的主题出发,通过质疑和挑战传统的视觉传达方式,寻找新的对话、联系、传达方式和观点。最重要的是,这种设计思维可以运用在以后的项目中。

我们的每个设计工作坊都要求参与者创作许多与好奇和惊喜相关小项目(高压创作模式)。为了让工作坊与相关的主题、目标和教学计划相适应,每个作业的要求和限制都有所不同。

Curiosity by Nienke JansenWorking on the exhibition at HNU, Changsha, China

In general a workshop starts with a seminar or presentation, and on a regular basis, they are concluded by an interactive installation, presentation or a publication. In this way we also challenge the audience to take on an active role in interpreting the curiosities.


The C.o.c.o.i. workshops are proven to be effective for:
- designers and other creatives to expand their horizon and to discover new methods which can be incorporated in future projects.
- companies with strategic challenges and questions.

The workshop can be offered in English, Dutch, Chinese and Korean.
For more information, questions or bookings please contact us at design@thevisualtheatre.nl. We are happy to elaborate about the workshop and to see how we can make it fit to your desires :-)

工作坊一般都从研讨会或演讲开始。通常,我们会以一个展览、一次演讲或一份出版物的形式来展示工作坊的成果。这样,我们也能引来观众积极的反馈。

C.o.c.o.i. 被证明是有效地让学生开拓眼界,并探索新的视觉传达方法的工作坊,这些方法也可以用在他们今后的项目中。
同时,C.o.c.o.i. 也可以为在战略上遇到挑战或问题的公司服务。

C.o.c.o.i. 设计工作坊可以用英文、荷兰文、中文和韩文举办。
