The Boreal Bash is an event organised by one of North America’s premiere photo collectives. Boreal Collective has hosted three previous Bash events in Toronto, creating a public space for photographers to come together, share ideas and grow. In 2015, our theme was young, emerging photo collectives. Boreal, Prime Collective and MJR came together to explore and explain the differences, commonalities and successes of our organizations.

For 2016, Boreal has challenged themselves to bring the event to a new location and connect with a new audience. This year’s event will take place in Mexico and will be completely bilingual, connecting photographers from Mexico and Latin America with an international crowd.

We have organized the Bash and the Workshop around the theme of “Alternative Platforms for Storytelling.” With a world saturated by photographs and video, how can we better engage our audiences and use technology to enhance our visual storytelling? And where does one start?

Boreal is partnering with BlackBox collective and Screen Projects from New York City to help to diversify the event's perspective.

Boreal Bash es un evento organizado por uno de los principales colectivos de fotos en América del norte. El colectivo ha organizado anteriormente tres Bash en Toronto, creando un espacio para que fotógrafos de todas partes del mundo puedan reunirse, compartir ideas y crecer.

Para el 2016, Boreal ha emprendido un reto para traer el Bash a un nuevo territorio y conectar con un público diferente. En México, el evento será totalmente bilingüe, y enlazará a fotógrafos de México y América Latina con una comunidad internacional.

Este año hemos organizado el Bash y el taller sobre el tema de "Plataformas alternativas para contar historias". ¿Con un mundo saturado por fotografías y video, cómo podemos mejor conectarnos mejor con nuestras audiencias y utilizar la tecnología para mejorar nuestra narración visual? ¿por dónde comenzar?

Risks and challenges

The total budget for the event is $24,000.00 (CAD). Travel expenses for our guests and Boreal members will take up 80% of our raised income, the remainder going to the direct costs of hosting the event. We hope to raise half of this amount through Kickstarter, and the remainder will be raised through private funding, including brand sponsorship and grants.

Kickstarter is all or nothing, so if we don’t reach our goal we do not get any of the proceeds. We have committed to this year’s Bash and its mission, and we will make it happen. However, if we don’t reach our fundraising goals ability to produce the ideal event and serve our audience will be much reduced.

El presupuesto total para el evento es $24.000,00 (CAD). Gastos de viaje se llevan el 80% de nuestros elevados ingresos, el resto a costos del evento. La mitad espera ser levantado a través de Kickstarter, el resto se planteará a través de fondos privados, incluyendo el patrocinio de marcas y becas.

Kickstarter es todo o nada, así que si no alcanzamos nuestro objetivo no obtenemos el dinero. Nos hemos comprometido al Bash y va a suceder, pero si no alcanzamos nuestros objetivos, obviamente la visión para el evento será mucho más pequeña.
