The Minimalists to Speak at UM May 9

March 07, 2017

MISSOULA – Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, known as “The Minimalists,” will present an in-depth talk about minimalism at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 9, at the University of Montana’s Dennison Theatre as part of their “Less is Now” tour. After their presentation, they will record a live version of “Ask the Minimalists” for their popular podcast. 

Tickets cost $25 for reserved seats or $85 for VIP seats, which include a meet-and-greet event with Millburn and Nicodemus. They go on sale at 2 p.m. Friday, March 10, online at http://www.livenation.com/artists/168  012/the-minimalists-less-is-now-tour or at http://www.umt.edu/griztix/.

In the pursuit of looking for something more substantial than compulsory consumption and the broken American Dream, Milburn and Nicodemus each walked away from six-figure careers to embark on a new journey of living with less.

Since embracing simplicity as a lifestyle, they have written three books, including the bestselling memoir “Everything That Remains;” launched a popular podcast; cofounded Asymmetrical Press, a publishing house for the indie at heart; embarked on a 100-city international speaking tour; and spoken on high-profile stages including SXSW, TEDx and Apple.

Their new film, “Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things,” was the No. 1 indie documentary of 2016.
