After Burning Man 2017, participants of the first Kurenivka camp did not immediately reunite in Kiev. After the Burn, some people relaxed on the beach, some went on a long business trip, and others travelled around the States. Finally, the Kurenivka Afterparty was scheduled for January 19, 2018, and it consisted of two parts.

At the beginning of the evening, a meetup of Ukrainian Berners was held at the Closer Art Center. Although the lecture format for the community was not new, we decided to focus on information for artists who wanted to bring an art project to Burning Man. We did away with presentations on what to bring to Burning Man, and instead invited speakers from San Francisco and Lithuania.

After the end of the official event upstairs, we had an evening event at the nightclub Mezzanine. That night, musicians and DJs were inspired by flames of Camp Kurenivka at Burning Man 2017. They included: Happy People (live), Deus, Fun2Mass, Mamay, and special guests Hector Cooper and Pilarion.
At the party, we showed the Kurenivka Aftermovie.
