Black Ignite is about celebrating Black Designers and amplifying public speaking + creative storytelling. We are a collective of creatives from coast to coast cultivating community and igniting change.

We are most known for our inaugural event in August of 2020 where 30 Black Designers spoke, ignite style, about their transitions as a Black designer in America. Ever since then, this community has grown and expanded beyond measure..

Join us for Black Ignite 2021!
It’s Sunday August 22nd.

The theme is Identity. It’s all about the journey.. Join us for what will be an inspiring experience! The event is held on Crowdcast with live captioning and the chat open the entire time. We hope to see you there!

Submissions are now closed. Stay tuned for official speaker announcements soon!

Each year we’ll continue the tradition we started in 2020. We’ll host Black Designers Ignite in August.. and pay 30 Black designers 100% of the events’ ticket sales. Members from years previous will act as jurors, MCs, keynote speakers and all around mentors. We’ll hustle to gain sponsors and partners keeping our commitment to pay all the talent behind our events.
