EGA Seedlings – Community Video Project
We invite the Australian ethnobotanical and psychedelic community to contribute original video content to our ongoing Garden States Microdose webcast series taking place on the last Wednesday night of each month at 8:00 pm AEDT (Melbourne) until our next major conference can return.
During this time of reflection and uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to reach out and share our knowledge and experiences with the community. So, we’re inviting people to view the EGA statement of purpose and mission and respond with a pre-recorded video that is aligned with our charity’s cause in any way. Let’s get together to showcase and celebrate Australian knowledge and culture!
Videos can range in duration from 30 seconds to nine minutes, 20 seconds (9:20). Submissions can be talking heads, instructional, points of view, creative, or anything your imagination can come up with to share with the community related to our mission.
Please keep it legal, make sure its original visual and audio content that has not been previously released (on YouTube for example), meets the specifications of the project. Remember to be respectful of yourself and others and share with us all how you plant ethnobotanical seeds for earth, body, and mind.
Due date: Currently Ongoing (submissions are due by midnight on the last Tuesday of each month to be eligible for screening on Wednesday of that week).
