    The Art of Politics: reflections on the Australian Labor Party, Refugees and Climate Change

    Examining the tough relationships between mainstream progressive parties and movements in Australia, host Amanda Tattersall looks back at her own experience. She tells the story of the 2001-2004 refugee movement’s attempt to shift the Australian Labor Party (ALP) and examines what worked, and what was learnt. Lessons are drawn for the climate movement today. This piece was also published by Fabian Review in February 2022.

    You can find the original article online at Australian Fabian Review here.

    Mostafa (Moz) Azimitabar

    Australia locks up asylum seekers if they attempt to get here by boat. But the refugees that have been subject to indefinite detention on Manus Island and in Australian hotels have resisted. Mostafa Azimitabar, Moz, has led refugee resistance from the inside using the change-making skills that he developed as a Kurdish freedom fighter. Here he shares his story and his approach to change-making, and the lessons learned in his struggle against the Iranian and Australian governments.

    You can find Moz on Twitter @AzimiMoz and on Instagram @mostafaazimitabar.

    Wenn Lawson - ChangeMaker Chat

    Wenn Lawson - ChangeMaker Chat

    The Disability Movement famously argues ‘nothing about us without us.’ Wenn Lawson lives this creed as a world leading autistic advocate and researcher who has helped change how we understand autism and neurodivergence. He shares his journey, including how he shook the house of academia so it would listen to the lives of autistic people. He reflects on the power of co-produced research, identity and difference in how we build knowledge together.

    Inside Russia’s brave protest movement

    Inside Russia’s brave protest movement

    Resistance to the war in Ukraine is strong, in Ukraine and also in Russia. This episode is about a housing campaign by Russian dissidents recorded in 2017. These families came together to defend urban forests - large parklands that serve as backyards for tens of thousands of Mosovites. This story documents the political pressure they faced as they sought to defend their homes from the over-development brought on by oligarchs and the kleptocratic state.

    ChangeMaker Chat - Joshua Ross - Venture Philanthropy and money for good

    ChangeMaker Chat - Joshua Ross - Venture Philanthropy and money for good

    What would it take for the goodies of the world to have a growing, exponential set of resources to finance how we make change? Josh Ross explores the idea of venture philanthropy and his not-for-profit ticketing organisation Humanitix. His company is disrupting event ticketing while also raising an exponential sum for charitable causes. Seed funding created a different kind of charity, where the business model raises more money than donations ever could. We talk about how he got started, what this means for philanthropy, and the role of technology in social change.
