A Burning: Community Campfire

  • PAR Projects 1662 Hoffner Street Cincinnati, OH, 45223 United States (map)

Join us at PAR-Projects for A Burning: Community Campfire.

A Burning is a community gathering centered around a bonfire fueled both by wood and a potent manifestation of letting go. Everyone is encouraged to bring artifacts that represent something that they would like to let go of—letters, notes, lists, photos, simple objects, anything with meaning that won’t create toxic fumes when burned, because that’s the idea: we symbolically remove the things we want to get past by watching them disappear in the fire. And, if we’d like to, we share with the group why and what we’re burning—catharsis is more palpable when shared. 

There will be typewriters on site for the preparation of burnable thoughts. 

Come spend quality time with your neighbors!

This event was developed by Megan Trischler and Scott Holzman alongside the installation currently exhibiting at PAR-Projects:
