Beginning in 2015 the first Ignite Your Mind Festival was borne out of the passion of a small group of enthusiastic readers and writers who wanted to bring renowned authors to the people of the Burdekin.

With the aide of the Burdekin Shire Council and the Regional Art Development Funding program this proposal has become an annual event with a number of international bestselling authors attending.

To keep this wonderful opportunity running we rely on the kind support and donations provided by our community. If you would like to Sponsor an Author or Session or if you would just like to make a small donation your contribution will be greatly appreciated.
