Australia's National Festival
of Social Change
A celebration of great work happening in Australia, an exploration of the ideas,
people, and technologies driving change, and an invitation for everyone to get
involved in creating a better future.

the changemakers festival is coming!


17-26 October 2014

The Changemakers Festival brings together a diverse community of people passionate about making a difference. It’s a platform to showcase new and innovative ideas, to share our experiences, inspire one another, learn from our failures and celebrate our successes.

The Changemakers Festival is an “open access” or “distributed” festival – anyone in Australia can create an event and request to be added to the festival line-up. Hundreds of events will be hosted by leading thinkers and local organisations in every state and territory, and we’d love you to be a part of it.

There’ll be more info to come, but right now we want you to put those dates in your diary – if you’re interested in holding an event, now is the time to start planning something amazing. And if you’re just keen to come along to some events and get involved in the social change community that’s great too.

Either way, you should definitely sign up for email updates to stay in the loop:

The Changemakers Festival is an initiative of TACSI – The Australian Centre for Social Innovation. Find out more about TACSI or connect with us on social:
