Global Atheist Convention

Building on the success of The Rise of Atheism (2010) and A Celebration of Reason (2012), in 2018 the Atheist Foundation of Australia is excited to host the third Global Atheist Convention, Reason to Hope.

The convention will bring together like-minded thinkers, and those who want to challenge their thinking, for an exhilarating three days featuring world-renowned speakers and entertainers in a world-class Melbourne venue.

The Global Atheist Convention welcomes everyone - whether you are a ‘serious' atheist, ‘faithless and relaxed', someone who is not-sure-but-keeping-an-open-mind on the topic of religion or an intellectually curious religious person (or a partner, friend or family member of any of these) you might want to enjoy brilliant speakers, laugh at godless comedians maybe gather some food for thought from the discussions and debates.

It will be three days of entertainment, of philosophers, of mingling, of laughter and book-signing, of being challenged and confronted... thoughts about atheism, the role of science and evidence-based reasoning in a "post-truth" world and how a human-centred, skeptical, secular approach might well be our best hope for the future.
