Stan is a Wiradjuri, Kamilaroi and Dharrawal man who is a passionate and courageous advocate for the rights of First Nations people.
Our CF24 theme, Rivers of Change, is about coming together from different places and different perspectives to create something more powerful together. We look forward to Stan visiting Latji Latji and neighbouring Barkindji Country, and his contribution and presence at ChangeFest24.
Stan is committed to questions of justice. Stan demands we do better. Rather than seek to divide he seeks to bring peace and unite. He believes we should love and embrace even those who may hate us yet never lose sight of our moral duty to always stand with those afflicted. He believes the language of politics fails us and increases hostility. Stan is dedicated to finding new words, and new ways, for us to meet each other beyond our differences.
Stan Grant’s appearance at ChangeFest24 is managed through CelebritySpeakers.
