What Happens at Newkind?
A Capacity Building Excercise for Agents of Social Change
5 days of epic conversations, experienced presenters, delicious plant-based meals, workshops, discussion panels and creative expression at an oceanfront festival site in Marion Bay, Tasmania. All meals are included, airport pickup is included and if you don't want to travel with camping gear, you can book a tent set-up for you as well. Newkind makes it easy to get prepared to change the world. You just have to get yourself to Hobart on Wednesday the 29th of January.
Each morning starts off with multiple morning sessions like a guided walk to the beach for a swim or a morning yoga session. The breakfast bell is the glorious sound of bagpipes and there's plenty of time to get your catered breakfast and enjoy it anywhere on the festival site. The morning keynote lecture to set the tone for the morning session will begin at 9:30 am and that will lead to 2 main discussion panels and then 6 workshops sessions. After lunch, we have a tune in session and another round of discussion panels and workshops, with more creative or movement-based sessions for the late afternoon. A closing keynote will round out the day and lead into a delicious hot dinner that caters to all dietary needs. The evening opens up into music and spoken word or maybe a movie or even a late-night dance if you're feelin it.
We enjoy taking care of you. All meals and drinks are provided and sourced from local Tasmanian produce so we can reduce our carbon footprint, packaging, and food wastage, as well as save you the money you would normally spend at festivals on food. (It all adds up!) This lets you fully engage with the content, and continue conversations with the other participants and presenters over a meal or a late night coffee.
No matter your learning style, we want you to be engaged. There are both indoor and outdoor learning spaces, the main stage for keynotes and headline acts, as well as intimate workshop spaces.
We also provide access to hot water showers in a pristine, off-grid natural environment. Tea and coffee are available pretty much around the clock, Kombucha on tap and dessert served each night after dinner. We like getting close to nature and we treat our space with respect, but we don't have to be roughing it ;)
