EGA Fundraiser : Support the Conversation Around Psychedelics in Australia


This Spring EGA is looking for your support to sow the seeds for the next iteration of Australia's premier psychedelic symposium, EGA 2017. We are hoping to bring together experts from Australia and around the world, with a diverse range of backgrounds and experience, to discuss psychedelics and entheogenic plants.


The events are particularly expensive to run, and rely heavily on community support. So, in order to start the ball rolling for EGA 2017, we are aiming to raise funds to go towards covering some preliminary organisational costs, ensuring the conference can take place in a format that is both professional and sustainable.  The success of this fundraising campaign will enable a more affordable ticketed event for both academics and enthusiasts alike. Your generosity will help ensure that this important discussion surrounding psychedelics and related compounds goes ahead.


We encourage you to peruse the array of incredible donor rewards our community have brought together for this campaign, including original paintings and fine art prints from Australian artists, festival tickets, and much more. We hope you find something that suits you, or please feel free to donate any amount you can afford to support our campaign.


Spread the word and share the campaign amongst your friends and community, and help to support the important conversation around psychedelics

About Entheogenesis Australis:

For over a decade Entheogenesis Australis has provided a major meeting place for ethnobotanical enthusiasts and specialists in Australia to share information and celebrate community. The aims of the EGA conference are to address the issues relating to drug use from social, cultural and traditional perspectives. Past conference programs have drawn on covered diverse topics including therapy, biology, pharmacology, psychology, neuroscience, anthropology, botany, visionary art, culture, politics, law and more, to provide a realistic context of the role drugs and altered states play in the modern world.

Altered states of consciousness have long been a fundamental part of human culture, and as our world becomes increasingly fast-paced, alternative modalities are becoming ever more significant and consciously explored. If you’ve ever asked yourself: “has the ‘war on drugs’ created more problems than it has tried to solve?” or “is MDMA really a more dangerous drug than alcohol?” – then EGA is the place for you.
