Neighborhood Theatre, 511 East 36th Street
Tuesday, February 8th, 7pm to 9pm
It’s a high-energy evening of 5 minute talks where presenters are given 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. Presentations are by community members who have an idea and the guts to get on stage and share it with their hometown crowd.
Partially inspired by Pecha Kucha Nights, 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. Now, Ignite comes to Charlotte. Each presenter/speaker must register with Ignite to get 5 minutes to speak. The point of the event is to connect folks with ideas with the folks that make those ideas into reality. Each presenter/speaker that speaks will be videotaped and posted on Ignite’s international website for review from their folks. It’s a great way to get your idea out there!
Ignite Charlotte is run by local volunteers who are connected through the global Ignite network. Ignite is a force for raising the collective IQ and building connections in the Queen City. Fast-paced, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, global – Ignite Charlotte is all of these and more. With videos of the talks from the event uploaded to the web, Ignite Charlotte hopes to share all that knowledge and passion with the world.
