Bonfire: An Evening of Story Sharing

Bonfire is a story sharing event intended to deepen our understanding of the people who make up our community.

We invite participants to experience Bonfire through the lens of inclusion. As a guiding question for personal story sharing, story sharers will reflect on moments or periods in their life when they’ve felt included. They will reveal what has made them feel included, why they want to feel included, and what inclusion — or exclusion — look and feel like.

We invite you, as the listeners, to learn about the multiple dimensions of your fellow Seattleites through this unique format of personal story sharing.

Bonfire recognizes and celebrates the multiple dimensions of identity each of us has.

This is how listeners answered “What did you enjoy the most?” about this story sharing:

  • “Finding common ground with people I thought were my opposite.”
  • “How people are using their experiences to make changes that they want to see.”
  • “Being vulnerable together.”
  • “Meeting people I otherwise would not.”

This event is organized by a team of volunteers from Washington Technology Industry Association’s _ion, a civic collaboration program. Volunteer organizers: Michael Padilla, Ben Reuler, Jun Wen Zhong, Paul Privateer, Deena Pierott, Nick Welch.
