Arts & Culture, Special Programming

IgnitePINAfter its wildly successful debut at Town Hall on Nov. 8, the popular series returns with its simple premise: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.” Since 2006, Ignite has presented hundreds of talks around the world, sparking thriving Ignite communities in Portland, Sydney, Boulder, Baltimore, NYC, and more. 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. A Science Challenge networking event open to all precedes the talks, starting at approximately 7 pm, and tonight, as a special bonus, speaker/musician Tae Phoenix (her talk is titled, “How to Write a Song”) performs in the lobby at intermission.  Presented by Ignite Seattle and Town Hall.

Tickets are $5 at www.townhallseattle.org or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Town Hall members receive priority seating. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.

PLEASE NOTE: While we’ll open a special Ignite bar, along with the doors, at 6:30 pm, all transactions for beer, wine, soda, and/or snacks are cash-only.
