This popular, off-the-wall public-speaking series returns with its simple goal: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.” The February edition of Ignite features talks about “How to Write About Your #!@$#%# Family,” thinking “like an artist,” “Why Parasitic Wasps are AWESOME,” “Hacking Gentrification,” “Photographing the Unseen,” and a lot of other cool topics. Since 2006, Ignite communities have thrived in Portland, Sydney, Boulder, Baltimore, NYC, and elsewhere. Presenters are asked: If you had five minutes on stage, what would you say? What if you got only 20 slides, and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Touching briefly on a variety of topics, from the DIY community to parent-educator relationships, and presented by anyone and everyone, Ignite events are all-ages, fast-paced, sometimes-unpredictable, and always thought-provoking.
Starting at 7 p.m., a networking event precedes the talks; all are encouraged to attend and participate. The main stage program begins at 8 p.m.
Presented by: Town Hall and Ignite! Seattle, as part of the Arts & Culture series.
