Festival of Change

Festival of Change logo

CQUniversity wants to change the world for the better – and through social innovation, our students, staff, academics, and communities are all driving the transformation.

The Festival of Change is CQUniversity’s free social innovation festival, designed to celebrate and inspire changemaking.

In 2022, the Festival of Change will focus on opportunities to transform communities, develop social enterprise, grow resilience, and drive positive change.

Register now for exciting events featuring social change leaders, practical social innovation workshops, and storytelling sessions with inspiring changemakers from across Australia.

Held annually since 2018, this year’s festival features on-campus and online events across 1 - 12 August 2022.

Festival of Change is part of CQUniversity’s work as an Ashoka U Changemaker University, and Australia’s first social enterprise university certified by Social Traders.

We invite you to connect, discuss, learn and imagine a better world at one of our free events.

Just being involved in social innovation [through the uni] has challenged me and made me realise there’s so much more we can do for our community.
