ChangeFest on the Road is a series of events that take place in local communities. They offer communities an opportunity to host micro ChangeFest moments, co-designed with the ChangeFest Director and Creative Producer .
ChangeFest on the Road is an opportunity for system change practitioners and adaptive leaders to contribute to shifting the conditions holding inequity in place in their place. It is changemaking in action as leaders play and experiment with how to learn and share that learning.
Following an EOI process in January 2020, 16 communities put up their hands and the scoping process is well underway. There is an ambition to host at least three events in the later part of 2020, Covid-19 permitting.
ChangeFest on the Road is a vehicle to enable and foster:
- communities to identify and address their learning needs
- develop peer to peer connection between initiatives and to the next ChangeFest event
- deepen community relationships with First Nations Elders & leaders
- create more catalyst moments to mobilise a movement of changemakers
- experiment with a place based model that is more environmentally sustainable and will provide learning to impact the national CF gathering
Between ChangeFest19 and ChangeFestNT21, ChangeFest on the Road was being developed to converge in the NT.
