: Zeitgeist Media/Communications Team MeetingWhen
: Tuesday, July 27,[masked]:30 PMWhere
: Victory Cafe
581 Markham St
Toronto, ON M6G 2L7
As most of you are aware (or should be aware), Jacque Fresco and Roxanne Meadows of the Venus Project will be stopping by Toronto as part of their world tour on Saturday October 2nd. If you have not yet purchased a ticket to see them (two tickets should be the goal so you can introduce a friend or family member to these kinds of ideas), please visit http://www.zeitgeist-toronto.com
and click on the links to purchase your tickets to the event.
As the lecture is just two short months away, we are calling out to the chapter and related contacts with media and communications training and know-how to strike the Toronto Communications Team.
The Communications Team will be responsible for securing interviews, getting coverage and creating buzz for Jacque Fresco during the four days leading up to his lecture on Saturday, October 2, 2010. The goal will be to create excitement to sell-out the lecture (ticket sales) and in general, create more public discussion about The Venus Project through media coverage.
The first meeting will take place on Tuesday, July 27 at 7:30pm, Victory Cafe (581 Markham St, Bloor & Bathurst) with members of the Core Team of Zeitgeist Toronto.
- brief introductions and background experience
- start building a critical path leading to October 2nd by
- identifying potential media contacts, relationships and appropriate media outlets to approach
- reviewing press materials from Zeitgeist Canada
- determine roles, commitment and tasks with deadlines
- future meeting dates
- other suggestions as they come from the new team
What skills are we looking for:
- Enthusiasm, enthusiasm, enthusiasm
- Able to make some commitments between now and October
- Willing to share any media contacts and expertise for the success of Jacque's visit
We look forward to meeting those who are eager to help make the Toronto tour a spectacular week. Please also note that this Communications Team will be just one aspect of the logistics needed and requests for different types of assistance and skills will be coming as the events approach!
Any questions about the Communications Team can be sent to Victoria Buchy, [address removed] or at 647.344.7474.
All are welcome to this meeting and if you can't make please contact Victoria or myself and we can ensure you are included on future communications.
As a second meeting of interest, the Post Carbon Toronto Meetup Group will be having an event next Wednesday to discuss the situation in the Gulf and the implications as they relate to Peak Oil. If you are interested in attending (many Zeitgeisters will be there) please join the group and make an appearance there.
