Welcome to ChangeFest – the national celebration of place-based change.

Do you want a more inclusive, fairer and sustainable Australia?

Are you interested in taking part in this new festival, invited in and hosted by a local community, holding a national conversation with international relevance.

ChangeFest is a gathering of people intent on making change in their communities through working collaboratively. It’s a dynamic opportunity to learn, plan and collaborate to progress you and your community’s agenda for change.

You are invited to join in a movement determined to change the systems that hold disadvantage and inequality in place, committed to walking alongside and being led by First Nations people as well as responding responsibility to the Ecological Emergency.

Come to ChangeFest and add your voice, your ideas and learn from others. This is exciting emergent and powerful work to put local concerns at the centre of national and international plans.



Big thanks to Larrakia Elders, Palmerston Indigenous Network, Grow Well Live Well, the local host group, national conveners, all of the funders, volunteers, suppliers and everyone who came and participated in ChangeFestNT21.

The handover to Tasmania for ChangeFest22 took place in Sanctuary Lakes, Palmerston led by Aunty June Mills:

‘The Country is alive, you are never alone.’

The message stick was received by Susan Long, a First Nations leader in Georgetown, Tasmania.

ChangeFest on the Road are a series of smaller local events that build local muscle for change and contribute to national conversations. Get in touch to host an event in your place.
