The Burnie Works team and some of our partners travelled to Kutalayna, Bridgewater last week to take part in ChangeFest23.

ChangeFest is a national movement for place-based change. The program was full of opportunities to share and learn together with community leaders, policy makers, funders, service providers and other collaborators of place-based change and was this year hosted by The Kutalayna Collective.

The event featured a variety of keynote speeches, workshops, panels, and interactive activities, all designed to inspire, educate, and connect attendees.

Our team participated in panels and workshops sharing what we have experienced in our place-based work in Burnie.

After a few days of reflection following this thought provoking and mind opening few days, we have each penned some highlights from ChangeFest23.
