The Zeitgeist Movement welcomes you to attend Zeitgeist Day 2017 Main Event at the New Globe Theatre in Brisbane, Australia on March 25th-26th with Zeitgeist Movement founder, Peter Joseph and other special guests.

Join us as we discuss how science and technology are leading the way towards a more sustainable and equitable future.


Peter Joseph
The Zeitgeist Movement Founder

Peter Joseph

Peter Joseph is known worldwide as the creator of the award-winning “Zeitgeist Film Series” and founder of the “The Zeitgeist Movement”, a social sustainability advocacy group which currently operates across the world. He also founded the Annual Zeitgeist Media Festival for the arts. He created the free TV style web-series called Culture in Decline, which has been translated into over 25 languages & has received critical acclaim and scored millions of online views. Peter is a pioneer in free, open-distribution media and his work supports non-profit free online viewing and free downloads.

Peter has also lectured around the world, including the UK, Canada, America, Brazil & Israel, on the subjects of cultural/social sustainability, the importance of critical thought, and the social role of the arts and scientific literacy. His work has been profiled in the New York Times, The Huffington Post, The Marker, Free Speech TV, The Young Turks, Hollywood Today, The Examiner and many other media outlets. He has participated in multiple TEDx Events, has worked with The Global Summit and is also a frequent social critic on the news network Russia Today.

He identifies, in part, with emerging counter-culture organizations, such as Occupy Wall Street and is an active musician who performs around Los Angeles, CA where he currently resides.

Peter Joseph’s new book, The New Human Rights Movement will be released 21st March 2016 (a few days before Z-Day) and is about how we can design our way to a better society. He has also recently released a trailer to his much-anticipated new film series, Interreflections, described as narrative-based, live-action fantasy style that inspires the audience to think differently about the world we have today… and the world we could have tomorrow.

As Australia is a long way for many of our regular main event presenters, as well as some other well-regarded changemakers who support TZM, we’re reaching out to the wider Zeitgeist community to make contributions through ticket sales and phantom tickets (that’s for people who can’t actually get here but would like to contribute). If you would like to provide a more significant contribution, please email casey.d@zeitgeistaustralia.org (to avoid eventbrite fees).

The Australian chapter of the Zeitgeist Movement are just people – we all work just like everyone else to make ends meet, but put our hard earned dollars into making this event a reality. We have managed to cut costs where possible – thanks to Paul from the New Globe Theatre for providing a free amazing venue and others who are volunteering their skills and knowledge. We also provide free food and exchange services wherever we can, to promote the values we stand for. However, some costs, such as flights for international guests are unavoidable. Please think about this when considering your ticket choice. We are also providing some free tickets for people who are avid supporters of the Movement but are in a difficult financial situation.

Free ticket registration is now closed.

Purchase tickets of your choice below. Thank you for your contribution!
