BONFIRE is a non-profit cultural organization for research and diffusion in contemporary arts. It currently takes the form of an online platform providing space for gathering and cooperation between artists and agents of the cultural field. By hosting digital artist residencies we encourage interaction, provoke new dialogues and reflections around the creative process, offer tools to the new lifestyle and media as well as support to develop new projects.
We deeply believe in the power of congregation and that is why our motivation to launch this project; promoting encounters and new synergies between different backgrounds, practices and cultures around the globe. BONFIRE is a proposal made by artists for artists, unfolding a diverse program of virtual residencies every year. The offer includes two types of programmes with different durations, objectives and levels of engagement. This, together with the digital communication, expands the possibilities for participation and makes the BONFIRE experience more accessible. It is our desire to enrich and humanise the artistic and cultural practice by crossing barriers, bridging distances and learning to build intimacy in the virtual space.
