In February 2021, Clarence Plains community group One Community Together had the pleasure of hosting ‘ChangeFest on the Road’. This event aims to showcase community spirit and bring people together to discuss positive changes being made by local leaders and creatives.

‘ChangeFest’ is a national place-based education and community gathering that runs over several days. This year, the main event was held in the Northern Territory, with smaller versions happening across the country. Speakers from around the state came to address issues and solutions in their communities. Over 130 people attended the Grace Centre for talks, tree planting, a silent disco, a community BBQ, and more! So many beautiful stories were shared and lifelong connections made.

The national ChangeFest event will be hosted in Tasmania in 2022, which will see folks from all over the country come to share their knowledge and experience in place-based, community change. It will be a wonderful opportunity to learn more about how to contribute to your community.

Thank you to everyone who got involved with ChangeFest on the Road in Clarence Plains. We look forward to getting together with you again soon.
