Social Impact Festival focuses on themes of home, land and place

The Social Impact Festival brings cutting-edge ideas into the spotlight once again, generating and sharing tactics and insights for addressing contemporary social problems.

This year, representatives from numerous industries, cultures and sectors will come to speak to their experiences on this year’s themes of Home, Land and Place.

The ten day festival includes a number of ways to interact with the festival including Impact Schools (conferences with experts on topics ranging from social housing to native title), participatory Impact Labs that goes through a bespoke design process, and Sparker Events for an all-in experience with community groups and local organisations and much more to do around the city.

OUTinPerth co-editors Graeme Watson and Leigh Andrew Hill will also be taking part in the Impact School: Place on Wednesday July 26th, speaking on the role of independent queer media in community building.

The Social Impact Festival runs from Tuesday July 18th – Friday July 28th at the University of Western Australia and various locations across Perth. For more information, or to register for events head to
