It’s that time again.
The time when Ignite Fort Collins takes off it’s incredibly thin sense of propriety and lets it all hang out.
Ignite Fort Collins After Dark #3 will be Friday March 13th.
Friday the 13th. We went there.
For those of you who missed out on the prior deliciousness that is After Dark, let us set the stage for you: Ignite Fort Collins After Dark is the naughtier big sister show to Ignite Fort Collins.
Speakers use the same 5 minute/20 slide format you know and love, but this is your opportunity to let your wild(er) side out. You know, the stuff you shouldn’t talk about in polite company.
Ignite Fort Collins is normally an all-ages show so the topics have to be a least PG-13. At After Dark, there are almost no limits (no hate speech or sales pitches!). This is where we talk about taboo topics, use profanity as commas, and graphic (the kind of graphic that you need two drinks to imagine and a lifetime to forget) images are allowed on the screen.
You can talk about sex, drugs, religion, death – whatever revs your engine and toots your horn. Perhaps you want to talk about how to pick the perfect tattoo artist, the history of curse words, what it’s like to be an ex-cult member, or what it takes to transform yourself into a drag performer. We want to hear about how the original fairy tales are too graphic for kids, how newbies roll a joint, what you’ve done at Burning Man, or that robot you’re building in your basement for nefarious purposes.
Because we’re not kidding around, you’ve got to be 21 to get in the door of the Midtown Arts Center. No exceptions. And because we’re really not kidding around, expect that at least one presentation will shock/offend/terrify you. No, really – we mean it. This is not a marketing ploy. You’ve been warned.
So here’s the catch. We need you to submit.
Breathe. We need you to submit a topic to talk about.
Nervous about submitting? Don’t be!
The Ignite Fort Collins audience is the most supportive audience you’ll ever meet (even if their jaws have hit the floor). If something turns you on, they’ll be into it with you. For your protection, the talks are not recorded and you may use an alias. Because your boss doesn’t need to know about your experience as The Gimp.
Not your cup of tea? We all have that friend with a unique kink, experience, or belief that desperately needs shared. For their sake, and for our audience, you need to get them drunk and have them submit a topic!
If you have any last minute questions, just reply to this email.
To be considered, finish your application for Ignite Fort Collins After Dark by February 17th at 5PM.
We cannot wait to see you there!
