Ignite Colorado Springs

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 4:30pm to 7:00pm

Berger Hall 1420 Austin Bluffs Parkway, Colorado Springs, CO 80918

What if you were only given 5 minutes and 20 slides to make a point? Ignite Colorado Springs is a night of high-energy presentations with a twist. Speakers are community members who will teach, enlighten, or inspire - and they have exactly 5 minutes to do so.

The goal is for speakers to "ignite" ideas through energizing talks, and generate a "spark" of movement within the community.

Ignite is a high-energy evening giving voice to the ideas and insights of Colorado's brightest, most creative, and most influential people. By bringing together such a diverse group of people we hope to create new connections and inspire action for our community. This action will take many forms, and each will help move Colorado towards a brighter future. Ignite is a night of presentations with a twist. Each presenter has only 5 minutes and 20 slides advancing automatically to make their point. Speakers must get to the point quickly and succinctly, providing the audience with a hint of the scope of their projects, initiatives, and visions.

Speakers for the November 2013 Ignite Colorado Springs event have been specifically invited to speak about projects, ideas, and events relating arts and culture within the region.

No fee to attend, thanks to EPIIC.
