Arts & Culture

After a wildly successful debut season at Town Hall, the popular public-speaking series returns with its simple goal: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.” 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.
<Tickets: $5.
Doors open: 7:00 p.m. Talks begin at 8:00 p.m.
Town Hall member benefits: Priority seating.
Note: The Ignite bar will be open, but can accept only cash or checks.
