Recognising the power of art and media to help change the world, “The Zeitgeist Media Festival” engages the artistic community and their power to changes values. It proposes that needed changes in the structural/economic workings of society can only manifest in tandem with a personal/social transformation of values in each of us. While intellectual knowledge serves its role of showing the path, many in the world follow their feelings- not the knowledge. The Zeitgeist Media Festival hopes to bridge those levels, while also illuminating a focus where changing and improving the world is no longer considered a fringe, suspect or ever dangerous pursuit…. but rather the highest and most honorable level of personal/social integrity we have. Many seem to forget that the world society as it exists was created by us… and we can change it anytime we want.
Participating in The Media Festival does not mean each event must meet some strict requirement of focus. However, participation does require that each act understand and agree with a general train of thought with respect to human and social sustainability and the self-evident factors that comprise a Global View of Earth as a single system and how that relates to our Human Family.
Charity Food Drive:
The Zeitgeist Media Festival LA is partnering with the LA Food Bank to pair in a Food Drive to help the many homeless and suffering people in Los Angeles. Likewise, the entire global event set is encouraged to conduct similar resource based drives for those in need across the world. More on this program and how you can help will be posted soon.
The Global Event period will take place on the weekend of Sept 9th to the 11th in 2011.
Los Angeles Main Event : Sept. 11th 2011, 2pm to 10pm
Location: The Music Box [www.themusicbox.la]
TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE
This is a Non-Profit/ At Cost Event, where the ticket cost reflects the expenditure of the event itself. As based on prior events, we expect a sold out LA event of roughly 1000 people. We feel this could be expanded to thousands more, but prefer to keep it small for this Main Event. Note: Apart from the Ticket, all attendees are required to bring a small canned/sealed food donation for the LA Food Drive.
