The Minimalists Announce First Ever New Zealand Show

The Minimalists Announce First Ever New Zealand Show



What if everything you ever wanted isn’t what you actually want?

TEG DAINTY & Nice Events are thrilled to announce the first New Zealand show of The Minimalists; American authors, podcasters, filmmakers and public speakers. Joshua & Ryan will present an in-depth talk about minimalism and record a live version of their wildly successful podcast series The Minimalists Podcast.
Auckland - Saturday March 17 - Ellerslie Events Centre

Tickets and VIP packages available from www.tegdainty.com
When they were twenty something, suit clad and upwardly mobile, best friends Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus (both now aged 36) thought they had everything anyone could ever want…until they didn't want any of it anymore.

By the time they were 28, they had everything they thought they wanted:
“the six-figure salary, the luxury cars, the designer clothes, the big suburban house with more toilets than people” - The New York Magazine

When Joshua was blindsided by the loss of his mother and his marriage and Ryan was faced with crippling debt and depression, they began questioning every aspect of the lives they had built for themselves. Then they discovered a lifestyle known as MINIMALISM – and everything began to change.

In the pursuit of looking for something more substantial than compulsory consumption and the broken American Dream, Joshua and Ryan both walked away from six figure careers and embarked on a new journey.

“We’re not talking about an easy life, but a simple one”

Since embracing simplicity as a lifestyle, they have written three books, including the best selling memoir, Everything That Remains, launched a #1 Podcast, cofounded Asymmetrical Press, a publishing house for the indie at heart, embarked on a 100 city international speaking tour and spoken at Harvard Business School, Apple, SXSW, TEDx and many other organisations and conferences. Their new film Minimalism: A Documentary About The Important Things, was the #1 indie documentary of 2016.

Joshua and Ryan have garnered an audience of more than four million readers at their website, Theminimalists.com where they write about living a meaningful life with less stuff. Their story has been featured in Time Magazine, People, Forbes, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, LA Weekly and several other outlets.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
