“Erfan spins a web of words, weaving cultural influences with spiritual insight to deliver a beautifully human experience.”
Matthew West – ArtfulScribe, Southhampton
Erfan Daliri was born in India to Iranian parents fleeing religious persecution in Iran and moved to Australia as a child in 1984. Growing up in a service orientated family greatly affected his outlook on life. At 17 he went overseas as a volunteer on a year of service, at 19 he was on his first youth engagement speaking tour. Over the next decade, he worked in youth engagement, refugee settlement, Indigenous self-determination, studied Infomechatronic Engineering and completed a Grad. Dip. in Communication for Social Change.
As founding director of the Newkind social justice conference, advisor to Amnesty International and an internationally toured inspirational speaker and spoken word artist, Erfan is about to release his highly anticipated third book, Raising Humanity: the changemaker’s guidebook.
With this extensive and diverse range of expertise, Erfan is one of the most informed and engaging presenters to speak on issues of social justice and the process of social change. He seamlessly stitches together themes of ecology, economics, mental health, early childhood education, social change theory and spirituality into eye-opening keynotes, heart-cracking performances and finger on the pulse consulting sessions.
Erfan now offers consulting to individuals and organisations working in the areas of social, environmental and economic justice, as well as speaking to audiences from school students to conference keynotes. With a depth of experience in designing and implementing grassroots initiatives and participatory development projects, Erfan is in his element when he is inspiring and empowering people to create positive social change the way they want.
