Social animator, author, youth educator, event director and international spoken word artist Erfan Daliri will be a key headline speaker for the upcoming Renew Fest 2018, to be held May 18 till 20 at the Mullumbimby showground.

Festival director Ella Rose Goninan says, ‘I’m absolutely thrilled Erfan said yes to our invitation to present on the Radicle stage.’

‘Having just experienced NewKind Festival 2.0 through their Social Change Agent Scholarship program, I’m so excited about what his presence at Renew Fest will bring.

‘His ability to inspire many to rise and roar in the name of climate justice is deeply moving,’ says Goninan.

Erfan says, ‘I said yes to presenting at Renew Fest because of its shared intention to that of NewKind Festival’.

‘Renew like NewKind recognises the festival platform is a really powerful agent for offering a visceral, embodied learning experience of change.

‘We are both aiming to use the festival platform to bring about real tangible change that lives within us as individuals first, which we then take out into the world to make the world a better place.’
