Night That Changed the World

Celebrate the power of personal transformation with spoken word, readings and discourse from community voices, thought-leaders and changemakers. For one special night, the Night That Changed the World brings people together to share stories and experiences of shaking-up the status quo in ways both gentle and giant. The Night That Changed the World take inspiration from Gandhi whose response to an experience of racism in South Africa on this same fateful night, 125 years earlier, forever changed his life and the lives of many others. On 7 June 1893 Gandhi took up the fight against discrimination, and began formulating the concept of satyagraha – non-violent protest. Along with Mahatma Gandhi: An Immigrant exhibition, the museum stays awake for this adult (ages 16 and over) night fuelled by the power of change, coffee and chai. Part of a global movement of technologists who are hacking for good, Random Hacks of Kindness also assemble this night at the museum to solve real-life problems submitted by organisations committed to creating social impact. Find out how you can be involved at Random Hacks of Kindness Changemakers.
