Don't miss the 1st annual "Ignite the Basin" 

at the the Basin City Arts Center. 


IGNITE events are happening in over 100 cities worldwide organized by volunteers. Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions using a specific format. The Ignite event holds the motto: “ Enlighten us, but make it quick!”  Anyone can throw an Ignite event.  The presentations are meant to “ ignite” the audience on a subject  whereby awareness, thought, and action are generated on the subjects presented.  At an Ignite event, each speaker has a time limit of five minutes, and must use 20 slides with each slide advancing automatically after 15 seconds. This forces speakers to maintain a rapid pace. At a just-comprehensible clip of 160 words a minute, Ignite speakers can utter about 40 words per slide, making a total of 800 words for the complete talk.
 
IGNITE the BASIN will be held Feb. 19th at the Basin City Arts Center.  Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with refreshments, snacks and malt beverages sold in the ballroom upstairs.  Talks begin at 7:00 p.m.  Eight presenters from across the Big Horn Basin from Worland, Cody, Powell, Greybull, Thermopolis, and Basin will inspire, entertain, and educate us.  This free event is family friendly and promises to be a unique and enjoyable evening!  For more information contact Lynne Davies @ 568-2207.

WYOMING HUMANITIES COUNCIL HOSTS OSCAR WINNING DOCUMENTARY IN BASIN

 

The Wyoming Humanities Council is hosting a free screening of the Oscar winning Best Documentary Short Film Saving Face at the Basin City Arts Center on Friday, March 15, in Basin. There will be a short reception following the film, and the audience will have the opportunity discuss the film and other works with University of Wyoming Associate Professor of Gender & Women's Studies, Bonnie Zare. The film and discussion are free and open to the public and are presented in conjunction with the Wyoming Humanities Council’s Giving Voice: A Wyoming Listening Project initiative.

Saving Face explores the stories of two Pakistani women, disfigured by acid attacks by their husbands, as they undergo surgery at the hands of Dr. Mohammad Jawad, a Karachi-born London plastic surgeon who regularly returns to his homeland to help victims of acid attacks.  The film also follows efforts by members of the Pakistani Parliament to pass legislation establishing severe punishment for those convicted of acid attacks.  Inspiring on many levels, the film leaves us to ponder the work that needs to be done to bring women to positions of respect and equality, throughout the world. For more information about the Wyoming Humanities Council, call (307) 721-9243 or visit www.uwyo.edu/humanities.
