Bonjour Baby

Bonjour Baby

Bonjour Baby is a participatory platform for multidisciplinary designers based in Basel, Switzerland. The project space serves as an interdisciplinary workspace as well as meeting place. Exhibition, reading, concerts, workshops and performances take place, where the contents are shaped by the needs of the users. The enabling of dialogue, intercultural and interdisciplinary networks forms the basis for new ideas to be generated. Projects can be presented and tested in a framework that elicits knowledge transfer and rethinks design mechanisms.

As a Co-founder of this project, I was involved in the concept development process as well as the project implementation from the foundational phase to the physical stage. In the team we wrote papers and held presentations to apply for foundation funds. Once the project started running I supported the team regarding art direction, curation and organization remotely from Cape Town.
