by Louellen Coker on February 18, 2010

Global Ignite Week DallasOn Wednesday, March 3, speakers will take the stage at the Granada Theater from 6 to 10 pm at the first Ignite Dallas.

What is Ignite Dallas?

Five minutes, 20 slides. What would you say? At Ignite Dallas, 16 artists, technologists, thinkers, and personalities will take the stage to answer this challenge.

The Goal

To spark new conversations and collaborations across cultures and disciplines throughout the city of Dallas with fast-paced, bite-sized presentations. It’s a great opportunity to meet smart, interesting people (if we do say so ourselves) and maybe even learn something.

Want to Speak?

So you want to speak?  Great!  Fill out the speaker’s application form to submit your idea for a talk.  Topics can be technical, geeky, funny, artistic, creative or just plain wild and crazy, but please no sale pitches. You can submit multiple times, but only one talk will be chosen per presenter. (Submission deadline is February 20.)
