Join over 500 community changemakers and collaborators in Australia’s movement for place-based change. Each year we gather to learn, connect and amplify our collaborative efforts of place-based change. We celebrate what is possible and co-create what is needed to create more equitable futures through community led systems change.

We’re excited to announce ChangeFest 2024 will be on 20-22 March on Latje Latje Country in Mildura in regional Victoria.

Our local hosts, Hands Up Mallee and Connected Beginnings Mildura, are deeply experienced leaders for community-led place-based change in Australia and globally. 

“We are excited to invite change makers from around the country to gather with our community to share, learn and celebrate change on the banks of the Murray River.

ChangeFest24 is an opportunity for vital conversations about the ways of working needed to create changes alongside the community and for us to showcase the incredible work of our community in the beautiful place where we work, live and play.

Working together, we want ChangeFest24 to engage the national movement in conversations about what it takes to do this work and where to next for community-led, place-based change in Australia.”
