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.
