This not-for-profit Activist Arts Festival features music, visual and interactive art, comedy, film speakers, and theatric. With over 30 performances/screenings, this seven hour event will be a landmark experience. The event also features promotion for many social causes and is about information as much as it is about aesthetic.

Recognizing the power of art and media to help change the world, the annual Zeitgeist Media Festival bridges the artistic and activist communities in the hope to inspire change. It recognizes that deeply needed, radical changes in the structural/economic workings of society can only manifest in tandem with a personal/social transformation of values in each of us.
