From Katarina’s pitch:
Last summer, I quit my job as a multimedia designer to go on a quest of creativity. My art was experimental before and it got a lot weirder. Kaleidescopy is a genre of art that allows for anything to be beautiful. It also has the power to transform beauty into terror (on occasion).

Sometimes experimentation means pushing yourself, to see how you might grow and become a bigger person. Watch Cassie Wallender speak about her experiences with Big Brothers, Big Sisters. And then submit your own talk for Ignite Seattle 27.
We’ve seen few talks that play within the constraints of the format in the way that Sol Villarreal
did at Ignite Seattle 26. He invited a stranger from the audience (Mary Joyce
) up on to the stage to give a completely improvised (yes, really) Ignite talk. And it was amazing.
Sol Villarreal reads the Seattle Times and all the local blogs obsessively so that you don’t have to. Every Sunday morning he sends out an email called Sol’s Civic Minute that’ll tell you what’s happening in Seattle in just 60 seconds per week.
KUOW will broadcast the talks from Ignite Seattle 26 on their show Speakers Forum tomorrow night. You can catch a preview on SoundCloud, or tune into KUOW 94.9 FM tomorrow at 11pm.
