Global Atheist Convention 2018

Global Atheist Convention 2018

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.

It will be held from 9-11 February 2018, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Australia.

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.
