Singer Rich McCloud added another dimension to Ignite Salem 5 with a poignant performance for all the fellow dreamers. The message needs repeating and Rich is a skilled messenger.
Dragging the Gut Festival (gutfest.com) attracts thousands of visitors reliving their youth driving up and down 3rd Street every August in McMinnville, Oregon. And it all started on Facebook when Ruben Contreras, Jr., created a group to reminisce about the 1980′s car culture. Ruben shared his story at Ignite Salem 5 and explained how social media allows event organizers to bypass traditional methods of event promotion.
When you take care of nourishing your body’s cells, everything else falls into place, like health care, relationships and world peace. That’s the message from former engineer and world traveler John Collins, who has spent the past 40 years helping people regain control of their health. With the right focus, humans can largely avoid modern-day killers like heart disease, obesity and cancer.
A friend from Bend set a new bar for Ignite Salem talks. Impeccable timing, syncopation, a positive message and a smidgen of the absurd brought Sean Anderson right inside our heads and kept us on our toes. As director of the Poet House, Sean has practice making it seem effortless and his message about how to create flying pigs was right on target. The audience reacted warmly and we anticipate his return.
