On Wednesday, April 6 2011, 7 pm in the Absolute Hotel, miLKlabs
and IxDA Limerick
are joining forces to organise the first Ignite talk series
ever in our city!
Why this event?
The purpose of this event is to spread the news about miLKlabs, bring together like-minded people and create synergies between people from different backgrounds and highlight possible collaborations. We are also trying to shed a light on the creativity and talent of Limerick people and bringing them to the attention of the public. IxDA Limerick is hosting the event as part of the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development
What is Ignite?
In talks that are exactly five minutes long, Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. Ignite events are run by local volunteers in many locations around the world, as part of the global Ignite network. Talks are video recorded and shared on the Internet, allowing local Ignites to share the knowledge and passion with the world (more about Ignite here
