Atelier is a French word describing an artist’s studio or workshop. It can also describe a group of artists, designers or architects working collectively. An atelier is a space of creativity, learning, and connection.

Urban Bonfire Atelier brings together industry-leading design professionals and brands in a casual and intimate setting to discuss what outdoor space activation means to them. It allows our team to share our expertise, but also to learn from the individuals who are in the field and using our products and services first hand.
