Festival for the Future in Auckland

Festival for the Future in Auckland, September 5–7 // Early-bird Tickets &

This years' Festival for the Future is happening in Auckland, at AUT's beautiful Sir Paul Reeves Building in the central city – September 5–7.


The Festival is a critical part of the ecosystem we're helping to build to support young New Zealanders to unleash their potential to change the world. As part of it, we'll also be launching applications for the next evolution of Live the Dream, an intensive accelerator programme to help grow New Zealand's next generation of social entrepreneurs.


Right now, our tiny but powerful crew at Inspiring Stories Trust are working away on the Festival programme – it's gearing up to be a collaboration of epic proportions, and we're delighted to be working with a range of great partners. We'll be announcing the line up in June.

Please join us – we'd love to have you involved as part of the next evolution!


Early Bird Tickets Now Available

Early-bird student ticket: $49

Early-bird waged/professional: $149

Tickets available via LilRegie: https://festival-for-the-future.lilregie.com/step1

Last year we supported 50 rangitahi (young people) from a diverse range of backgrounds to attend. For some of them, the experience has been life-changing. Please help us get the word out about scholarships and encourage young people to apply – applications close 16th June.
