Community, Special Programming

IgnitePINAfter two wildly successful sessions at Town Hall, 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; talks begin at 8. Presented by Ignite Seattle and Town Hall.
Tickets are $5 at 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. Double feature! Your ticket to this event also gains entry to Gary Greenberg: An Exposé of Psychiatry’s “Bible,” at 6 pm.
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.

    Mothers Day – my kids watched me practice for Thursday by using an ice-cream scoop as my pretend microphone. Eek. They also told me I fidget and need to stand still. Darn. Working on that.
