About Us

Who are we?

ChangeFest started as the idea of four organisations, keen to host a national gathering of place-based change makers.  By the end ChangeFest the ambition and potential had grown. An auditorium full of delegates from around Australia committed to the ChangeFest Statement and taking the Statement back to the communities they came from to bring it to life. 

Following ChangeFest 18 communities were invited to submit an Expression of Interest in hosting ChangeFest and the baton was been passed to Mt Druitt for 2019. This event was hosted by Jesuit Social Services, The Hive and Baabayn Aboriginal Corporation.

ChangeFest 21 was hosted in Palmerston, NT in June 2021. 

We are individual and community leaders, service providers, public servants, elected officials, philanthropists, business leaders and committed citizens. We come together across locations, professions and industries to imagine, share, learn and collaborate together.

We walk together with respect to First Nations.

Everyone is welcome to join this growing movement.
