Ignite turns 10!

Ignite Liverpool returns to Leaf on the 4th March for its 10th Birthday edition.




Ignite Liverpool returns to Leaf on the 4th March for its 10th Birthday edition.

On 4th March 2010, Ignite Liverpool had its first outing at John Moores Art and Design Academy, with about 10 speakers covering a range of topics from Open Source software to hacking the urban landscape for food. Since then, we have held over 40 events around the city with hundreds of influential speakers covering scientific, cultural and sometimes personal subjects. Now with a residency at Bold Street’s Leaf Café, as well as guest spots at MakeFest, we have continued to bring enlightening and thought-provoking evenings to the city, offering innovators and enthusiasts alike to wax lyrical about anything they wish.

Spreading ideas and encouraging engagement through inspiring talks is at the heart of what we do and we welcome people from all backgrounds to get involved. If you have a passion that you want to share, just provide us with the slides and we’ll provide a stage. The condition is you only get 5 minutes!

The last 10 years would not have been possible without our growing community of speakers and audience members getting involved and, as part of our special celebrations, we have invited a select group of speakers to take part. These individuals have given outstanding talks and are generally just great people and we look forward to hear what they have in store for us on March 4th 2020.

It’s just weeks away and we can’t wait either! But in the meantime, you can get a taste of what these guys are all about by checking out some of their previous talks on our YouTube page.
