Ignite is a fast-paced geek event started by Brady Forrest, Technology Evangelist for O’Reilly Media, and Bre Pettis of Makerbot.com, formerly of MAKE Magazine. Speakers are given 20 slides, each shown for 15 seconds, giving each speaker 5 minutes of fame. The first Ignite took place in Seattle in 2006, and since then the event has become an international phenomenon, with gatherings in Helsinki, Finland; Paris, France; New York, New York; and many other locations.
We are bringing together individuals in the cultural sector and providing a platform to share aspects of culture that excite and inspire you. If you are an individual who is passionate about performance and visual arts, craft and design, theatres, galleries, museums, archives, historic sites (or anything else we haven’t thought of), we want to hear from you!
