Belonging to Place – ChangeFest on the Road in Clarence Plains 2021

On the 26th and 27th of February at the Grace Centre, One Community Together had the pleasure of hosting “ChangeFest on the Road” – a unique event bringing people together to showcase community spirit and 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 across Tassie came to discuss issues and solutions in their communities.

Connecting with the National ChangeFest program gave One Community Together the opportunity to highlight the collaborative work happening locally, build new connections with the local community, make important connections with Aboriginal and First Nations people, build networks with other collaborations across Tasmania and be inspired to work in new and creative ways.

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. Thank you to everyone who got involved with ChangeFest on the Road in Clarence Plains.

This event was funded through the Clarence City Council events program and had additional sponsorship from the Local Government Association of Tasmania, the Tasmanian State Government through the Premier’s discretionary fund, and local MP’s, Sarah Lovell, Alison Standen and David O’Byrne.
