WELCOME TO ZEITGEIST VANCOUVER
Welcome to Zeitgeist Vancouver, a local chapter of the global Zeitgeist Movement. Based on principles of environmental alignment and use of the scientific method applied toward social and environmental concern, we advocate for a socially just, sustainable and peaceful way of life. Zeitgeist Vancouver hopes you will join us in the movement and be the change you want to see in the world. Join us at the Vancouver Art Gallery every other weekend. Visit www.thezeitgeistmovement.com for more information on the Movement's tenets and advocacy initiatives.
Let's come together and create a new collective awareness.
ZEITGEIST VANCOUVER has been a very active visual force throughout the local community. Taking advantage of many local events and festivals throughout the city, as well as our weekly "Town Hall" street event at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Zeitgeist Vancouver creates many great opportunities to engage a very receptive public.
VANCOUVER 2012 was an extremely busy year for Zeitgeist Vancouver with many successes, new experiences and collaborations which sought to bring the Movement to new audiences.
Zeitgeist Vancouver was privileged to host the MAIN ZDAY event for 2012, bringing in various speakers including Zeitgeist Film Series creator and TZM founder Peter Joseph (US), author Federico Pistono (Italy), former space shuttle engineer Douglas Mallette (US), founder of TZM Education James Phillips (UK), Zeitgeist Vancouver coordinator, media spokesman, and member of TZM Lecture Team Matt Berkowitz (Can), and Zeitgeist Vancouver coordinator Aaron Moritz (Can).
The event was a tremendous success with nearly 500 in attendance. Consult the PAST EVENTS section to watch the lectures and Q&A from the event.
Peter Joseph and Matt Berkowitz had the opportunity to once again appear on CFOX 99.3 FM to promote the Movement and answer questions amidst an always light-hearted show on The Fox.
In early June, Zeitgeist Vancouver was honoured to collaborate with Dr. Gabor Maté for a lecture and Q&A event, successfully bringing together two audiences under the same roof to share ideas and insight. This event was another wonderful memorable success, with over 300 in attendance, and was one of the most enjoyable Zeitgeist Vancouver has participated in to date.
At our 4th Annual Car Free Festival more than 30,000 came out and enjoyed a great day of sunshine and car-free streets. We look very forward to participating in this great event next year!
Since our inception as a local community chapter of the Zeitgeist Movement the Vancouver Art Gallery has been our Z home base! Our gallery presence is one of the best moments for the Vancouver Zeitgeist team. We have been in front of the Art Gallery non-stop throughout the past few years. Every weekend our presence has been met with very enthusiastic response. Many great conversations have taken place and many thousands of Zeitgeist DVD's have been given out. We constantly see new faces to the Z Vancouver team out each week and the street presence continues to grow!
We will continue to take every opportunity to set up our Z-booth at the Vancouver Art Gallery throughout 2013. For all our event details please check out our Upcoming Events section for further details.
