On Friday the 17th of October, The Changemakers Festival was launched in six cities around Australia, these included Adelaide, Alice Springs, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

This festival is an initiative of The Australian Centre for Social Innovation (TACSI) whose purpose is to throw the spotlight on Australia's toughest social challenges to create social innovation.
