Ignite Amsterdam

Footage and info

Ignite is a worldwide event showcasing locals and their personal and professional passions. It is fast-paced and merciless: speakers get five minutes to present, making use of twenty slides that auto-advance every fifteen seconds. The Amsterdam events take place every last Wednesday of the month at Mediamatic Fabriek. Expect a combination of artists, designers, amateurs, researchers and the occasional lost poet or zen gardener. All presentations are given in English.
