Executive Director of the Wyoming Humanities Council

The Wyoming Humanities Council is staging its second annual Ignite Laramie event on Wednesday, September 10. The audience will hear roughly ten fast-paced mixed-media presentations. Speakers have five minutes to present their ideas, such as what it means to invest in local music, the fallacies in our everyday logic, or how to trust oneself to make hard decisions.

Organizer Jason Burge says the talks are centered on the idea of community.

Shannon Smith is the new Executive Director of the Wyoming Humanities Council. Smith comes to the Council after years working at a non-profit focusing on advancing higher education through the use of information technology.
