Newkind 2.0 is a festival experience like no other. A 5-day master class for Agents of Social Change. From 21st-25th March 2018, we will meet in Tasmania, where we are bringing together thought leaders, educators, architects, activists, food producers, artists, and inventors to inspire and empower us in becoming more effective agents of change. This is a capacity-building exercise as much as it is a festival.
Lectures, workshops, discussion panels and physical training sessions will lead into evenings of entertainment, experimental art, theatre and live music. Newkind is a cruelty-free event, where plant-based meals are included, in a zero-packaging, straightedge and renewable energy only environment.
Free of the usual festival wares, there will be no food stalls, no water sold in plastic bottles, nothing else to pay for. Airport transfers are included, meals, coffee and kombucha are provided, and you get to focus on actually being present with the experience.

Under the guise of a festival, the organisers of Newkind 2.0 are gathering thought leaders and activists from around the world, including inspirational speakers, neuroscientists, health experts and physical trainers, to inspire and empower more sustainable and effective activism.
The 6 Factions at Newkind Festival represent the six learning areas offered. We see these faction characters as archetypes that we all embody along our journey as evolving humans. Healers, Farmers, Engineers, Artists, Administrators and Scouts. Choosing your faction ticket is simply choosing a theme camp at the event; it determines where your camping area is. Below is a brief description of the faction guides.
As facilitators of connection, collaboration and empowerment towards projects for social change, we thought we'd follow through with a way of furthering what is initiated at the event. So in January 2018, we will launch an online platform to host and showcase projects for social change from around the world. Anyone can sign-up, any initiative can be showcased, and anyone can search projects around the world to support or join.
It's about sustainability and it's about social change, it's about empowerment and it's about access to information and knowledge sharing across the globe. The programming for Newkind Festival is carefully selected to empower and inspire agents of change to implement change in their own communities. And we think making that content available to as many people as possible is the most effective way we can bring about change.
