Sponsor an Ignite
Keep it Burning — Ignite Bend needs your support
As a volunteer-run free event held twice a year, we rely on the generosity of individuals, companies and other organizations to make Ignite Bend possible. Ignite Bend is a non-commercial, creative event that happens twice a year at the Tower Theatre. Ignite brings a twist to the same old lecture format that you’re used to. It’s cool. It’s fun. We can’t wait to see you at a future Ignite!
Ignite Bend is a force for raising the collective IQ and building connections in Bend and the surrounding communities. Ignite is about celebrating Bend’s growing arts and culture scene, and helps to attract and retain creative minds with it’s inclusive appeal.
Who attends Ignite Bend?
Ignite Bend attendees are primarily age 25-45, college educated and enjoy a broad variety of activities such as reading, cycling and movies. They are hungry for knowledge and interaction—key components of Ignite Bend.
What topics are presented at Ignite Bend?
