Ignite! began as a Town Hall for Transformus, the North Carolina regional burn. Over a matter of a few years, Ignite! has become its own Burn, an all-ages event with an amazing wellspring of talent shared through the community via playforms, music, dance, united experiences, and of course, setting things on fire.
As its history has its roots in the planning time known as the Town Hall, Ignite! tends to lend itself to activities around acculturation and community skill-shares and education. We like to call it a “learn ‘n’ burn”: the community provides playforms to share knowledge throughout the day (from perennial favorites like training for Rangers and EMS, to baby burners building baby effigies, to how to make flavored cordials for the grownups, info sessions on how to power your camp, and more), an effigy on Saturday night, and (new!) an Art burn Sunday night.
Ignite! strives to be an event that nurtures both new and experienced burners alike. Community leaders come together to catch up with one another and brainstorm new and exciting ways to help make our events even better, and fresh burners get to mix and mingle in a more intimate setting.
