The Changemakers Festival is a nationwide celebration of the great work happening in our community, an exploration of the ideas, techniques and technologies that are driving this change, and an invitation for everyone to get involved in creating a better future for our communities and our world.

Over 10 action-packed days, more than 10,000 people will attend an event that will help them create more change in the world – it might be a seminar on how to attract investment and funding to a new social enterprise, or it might be a workshop on innovation in service design for local government. It might be a film festival raising awareness of human trafficking, a fundraiser for orphans in Cambodia, a Google hangout about using social media for change, or a keynote from one of the world’s leading thinkers on social innovation.

An initiative of The Australian Centre for Social Innovation (TACSI), the Festival is one big way we champion the people, methods and ideas that are making the world a better place.
