“Enlighten us but make it quick!” is the slogan of Ignite Talks
In the past we have been enlightened by many great Ignite Talks at the last Next Library Festivals. This year we are ready to continue the success and of course lift it up to another level. And therefore we called for ideas and proposals. We received more than 70 proposals!

What is an Ignite Next Library Talk?
Ignite Talks are short and fast-paced and each talk is 5 minutes with 20 slides that automatically advance in short intervals. The presentations are meant to ignite the audience on a subject or an idea that you think is worth sharing. The Ignite Talks are clustered in sessions and are followed up by talks and Q&As with the audience at the end of each session.
Ignite Next Library Talks must address one of the themes for Next Library 2019: Libraries in Times of Social Crises, Civic Media and Data Democracy, Temporary Spaces and Game Changing Tech & Emerging Trends.
Ignite Next Library is an opportunity for Next Library participants to share innovative projects of international relevance with other Next Library participants. Next Library is all about network and conversations about the library of the future. We hope the Ignite Next Library Talks will enhance connections between up-coming library innovators and experienced professionals across the world.
