IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING TICKETS:
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 firstname.lastname@example.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. We need to raise about $25,000. 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. If you’d like to appy for a free ticket, please complete this funny quiz and we will email you with your results and possibly your ticket.
