Why attend Ignite Denver?
Colorado is an entertainment intensive state. We have museums, a well-known art district, multiple music venues (indoor and outdoor), and almost as many local community theaters as microbreweries. So with all that to choose from why choose to attend Ignite Denver? For one simple reason…..community.
In 2017 many people in this world are seeking community. We are seeking intelligent, creative, funny, compassionate people to surround ourselves in because this is the way we see beauty in the world. I was lucky enough to be introduced to the Ignite community a few years ago and I can’t say enough about how warm and welcoming it has been since I first attended via livestream because I couldn’t make it out in the snow.
Since that first livestream performance 3 years ago I have been hooked. I have attended each performance since; mostly in person but once livestream. Last year I took the risk and became an Ignite speaker, as well as a member of the volunteer crew. Performing was so magical for me in so many ways but the peak intensity of magic came from the people around me. Not just the ridiculously amazing volunteers who put these shows together but the people in the audience and the people working at the Oriental Theater. The love that radiates throughout the theater during Ignite Denver shows is palpable.
It’s a love that comes from people accepting one another and applauding every single ounce of effort no matter how small or large. It’s a love that embraces both our similarities and our differences. It’s a love that renews your faith in mankind and one that leaves you with a strong desire to do more, to be better, to show others this love that you received and to tell everyone that will listen “you gotta go see Ignite Denver!”
You don’t have to take my word but why wouldn’t you want to take the chance to experience something this awesome?!?!
