Ignite was started in Seattle in 2006 by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis. Since then 100s of 5 minute talks have been given across the world. There are thriving Ignite communities in Seattle, Portland, Paris, and NYC. Ignite Philly will be held on Tuesday October 13th at Johnny Brenda's. Doors open at 6pm, speakers begin at 7pm.
The same night (unfortunately) the Community Design Collaborative will be presenting Terry Schwarz from Cleveland's Urban Design Collaborative, who will present Pop Up City at the Center for Architecture, 1216 Arch Street. Check out the trailer here.
