View Full Version : Happening every year?
13th March 2010, 09:14 AM
Does anyone know if the convention is going to be an annual thing here? Or if its going to rotate round various cities?
I was rather disappointed to not be able to get down there for this one, and am hoping it comes back.

It would be nice if we could have something like this every year in each capital city, on a rotating basis as Ectes has suggested. Henceforth to be known as...
The MAC - The Melbourne Atheist Convention
The SAC - The Sydney Atheist Covention
The BAC - The Brisbane Atheist Convention
The AAC - The Adelaide Atheist Convention
The HAC - The Hobart Atheist Convention
The PAC - The Perth Atheist Convention
The DAC - The Darwin Atheist Convention
The CAC - The Canberra Atheist Convention
"So, what are you doing this weekend?"
"I'm going to the MAC."

Oh I'm convinced it could really change things! ;)
Could you imagine if "atheistic enthusiasm" actually 'caught on'?
The more voices the better!

Great idea. I am hoping this one isnt going to be the first and last. I will definately travel to whichever city it's in, providing there are no little surprises preventing me like there was this year. I will put everyone in my life on ice for the occasion. They could all do with a little chilling. :D

I'd like to see the event rotating through the capitals. I'd also like to see the order determined by a measure of media engagement. Media coverage of woo would be a positive determinant, and lack of coverage of atheistic content likewise. Bring the roadshow to the places which didn't hear about the GAC and are fed a constant stream of woo. I know Brisbane falls into this category, and have heard WA fared no better over the GAC. Don't know about some of the others.

It is the Global Atheist Convention ;)
But we have pretty much shown that Melbourne at least is the atheist capital of the world ;)
EDIT: should approach the topic Ectes raises, all I can say is plans are afoot ;)
