“Can we proactively engage in our own evolution?”

Newkind 2.0 is a 5-day masterclass for Agents of Social Change. From 21st-25th March 2018, we will meet in Tasmania, for a festival experience like no other. We're assembling thought leaders, educators, activists, food producers, artists, inventors and visionaries to train and empower us to become more effective in our mission to create a peaceful, sustainable, just and equitable world. 

Lectures, workshops, discussion panels, skill development and physical training sessions will lead into evenings of experimental art, immersive theatre, and live music. Newkind is a Vegan, StraightEdge, Zero Packaging, Off-Grid and Renewable Energy Only event. 

All meals are provided at Newkind so we can ensure a plant-based diet, minimal carbon footprint, and get as close to zero waste as possible




We're calling out to the world builders, the creators, makers, hackers, thinkers, who want to join us in creating a new reality; a new world, a new way of being. We Are Newkind, and we're constructing a base camp at our Tasmanian outpost. Skills are needed, spaces are limited, and time is short. We are preparing the groundwork and smuggling in the world's leading inventors, educators, makers and doers so we can prepare for the journey ahead of us. 

We will post a video transmission each week with more details, so stay tuned to our Facebook feed for updates.

What is Newkind?

The Healers are the yogis, shamans, empaths, nurturers of the body and the soul. They are the prayerful meditators, the early risers, the soul food providers. They are the ones we turn to in times of emotional turmoil, when we seek further alignment, and need support and insightful guidance. They are the patient, and the generous, the peaceful and benevolent. The Healers are those who retreat to silence, create healing balms and soothing concoctions.

Healing, Health and Spiritual Wellbeing.

Would there have ever been empires and civilisations had it not been for us scouts? The adventurers, the travellers, the hikers and late night BMX bikers. It was our ever-searching, ever-seeking spirit that took us from caves to communities, and communities to nation states. The expeditions and journeys we went on, the information and knowledge we gathered, the lines of communications and trade that we opened; we were the path makers.

Survivalism, Fitness, Prepping and Adventuring

We are The Administrators. We are the planners and organisers of society, the educators and teachers, the designers of systems and the support structures of civilisations. We study human behaviour, we design and adjust policy, we are an investigative and questioning type. We gave communities structure and leadership, we offered kings and queens our advice, and we continued to further develop theories to help society understand itself and its relationship with its environment.

Sociology, Philosophy, Economics and Resource Management

We are The Artists. We are the visionaries and the dreamers, the ones who find inspiration from and offer meaning to life. What would be the point of our existence if we had no poetry and dance, no music or song, it is our ability to find and express beauty through our mediums that fills others with joy and brings peace to troubled hearts. We are the cause of laughter, we are the bringers of tears, we are the initiators of dance, and the seeders of ideas. The others make, and think, and do, and all of that, but it was us, The Artists who first envisioned it.

Performance Art, Tech Arts, Installations and Genre Mashing

We're the Engineers. We build the structures of society, we design new technologies, we code and programme, we hack, fix, invent and reinvent. We don't have time to explain all the things we've done throughout the course of human history. But everything from making the first well and crafting the first tool, to the levitation suits we're working on now, has all been by an engineer. If you own a welding mask, or a soldering iron, if you keep an adjustable wrench in your back pocket or you know how to code in C++, then you're probably one of us.

Technology, Design, Hacking, Innovation and Invention

The Farmers are those who care for the land and feed the people. We understand the intricate balance of nature and the rhythms and patterns of Earth. We have lived in alignment with the land in the past and it is time we taught others of the knowledge that we have. Mother Earth is our source and our home, and it is our duty to defend her and teach others of our respect and awe for this glorious planet we live on. The soil is fertile in Tasmania, the water is clean and the air is crisp and unpolluted.
