BASIN — “Enlighten us but make it quick” is the tagline for Ignite Talks.

Ignite Talks began in Seattle in 2006 and are now in more than 350 cities worldwide including Basin, according to organizer Lynn Davies.

Ignite’s mission is “Everyone Speaks.” The goal of Ignite is to build communities and make it possible for anyone, anywhere to present their ideas and their stories, Davies said.
