A masterclass for social change


We're here to create a better world. Straight up. We're here to design better systems, to champion socio-economic justice, bring about equality, defend diversity and facilitate the process of peace-building. Newkind is an event for those who are ready to step up and be the change we need to see in this world.

Through inspirational discussion panels, workshop sessions and thought-provoking lectures by academics, activists, entrepreneurs and social justice advocates, the Newkind conference is designed to empower you to make the positive impact you want to make on the world. 

Bringing thought leaders from the fields of education, economics, environmental protection, business, sustainability and social justice to create a powerful experience of cross-disciplinary conversation for the purpose of social change. So come... be inspired, and get connected with a community of leaders, pioneers and agents of social change.

This is a volunteer-run and not-for-profit event. It is also a cruelty-free event where your all meals and drinks are included in a drug-free, alcohol-free, and renewable energy only environment. An off-grid, zero-waste, plant-based, solar-powered, summer school for social change.



Once you've booked your tickets to Newkind 2019, you should book a flight to Hobart for Tuesday 19th of February and send us your itinerary to transport [at] newkindfestival.com and we will add you to our pick-up schedule. We will have charter buses running all day from the airport to the Marion Bay site, so you don't need to worry about what time your flight lands.

How to Get There

For Newkind 2019 we have 2 new accommodation options available!

We thought we'd make your Newkind experience as smooth flowing as possible, so not only have we moved to an oceanfront site with extensive campgrounds, toilets, showers and existing infrastructure, but we've added 2 new accommodation options. Previously everyone would bring their own tent and bedding but now we are able to provide you with a tent already set up with bedding and a pillow so you can travel lightly and not have to set up a tent on arrival.
