About The Event

Zeitgeist-Day (also known as Z-Day) is an event held globally by The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) that acts as a platform for speakers to give presentations and seminars that are in relation to exposing current problems and possible solutions in the current “zeitgeist”, or current climate of society. The event is held by many local TZM groups in various locations globally, while the movement also holds an annual global main event in various locations in the world.

The first Z-Day was held in 2009 as a global trend of TZM branches holding large orientations event about TZM, problems and solutions to global crises in the world. Branches of TZM globally organized almost simultaneously on March 13 th 2009 this event in their local areas, creating a lot of news coverage and exposure for TZM, including from The New York Times. This event has become an annual conference where all branches globally try to organize this event locally in their area, while a major global conference is organized called “Global Z-Day”, that holds a very international presence along with participants from the hosting area. However, Z-Days do not always happen on the same date annually and can happen on multiple dates. Any country with multiples branches in different cities can hold Z-Day on different dates for example.

Zeitgeist Media Festival

Recognizing the power of art and media to help change the world, the annual “Zeitgeist Media Festival” (ZMF) bridges the artistic & activist communities in the hope to inspire change. It recognizes that needed changes in the structural/economic workings of society can only manifest in tandem with a personal/social transformation of values in each of us. While intellectual knowledge serves its role of showing the path, many in the world follow their feelings and comforts – not new knowledge.

This powerful event, which parallels our more intellectual Z-Day event, seeks to use the power of art and media to help inspire hope and change in the world. This non-profit, Multimedia Arts-Activist Festival will feature live music, comedy, short films, spoken word, art gallery, collaborative/interactive-art rooms, presentations by prominent activists, artists, and thinkers, and will host a variety of organizations to promote solidarity and discussion of pressing social issues, and their resolution. Embracing a spirit of unity and exploration, the ZMF creates an atmosphere of catharsis from the creative suffocation of everyday life, while reinforcing the call for us to come together to realize long-term change.

Art is considered the most powerful tool we have to bridge these levels of awareness and inspire action for change. Keeping the gesture of the long history of influential artistic creators whose vision have changed our world for the better, The ZMF works to unify the world through this expression with the basic ethos that we are one species sharing one planet and it is time the world learns to work together for the betterment of all, before it is too late.
