25 January 2011 No Comment

vibewire-1001Vibewire Youth Inc.Founded in 2000, Vibewire Youth Inc. is a dynamic non-profit organisation that supports young people to effectively shape their world through media, arts and entrepreneurial opportunities.

Vibewire acknowledges that across the world young people are making important contributions as world citizens, productive workers, entrepreneurs, consumers and agents of change.

We are dedicated to encouraging and stimulating an entrepreneurial spirit by unlocking the talents, imagination and creativity of youth as drivers of change, addressing important economic, environmental and social issues within our communities.

Previously, Vibewire has run projects such as vibewire.net, Reelife Short Film Festival, electionTracker, PROJECTeye, e-Festival of Ideas, Go Mag, and the Interface Anthology.

New Direction:

Vibewire’s taking off in an exciting new direction, but embracing the ideas that we’ve always stood by. Our new website will have four new areas for Australia’s youth to get involved in.

Enterprise Hub

The Vibewire enterprise hub is a business incubator providing space, resources, connections and inspiration for young entrepreneurs during the start up phase of their initiatives. The Enterprise Hub was formerly known as SQuareOne.

Portal

Our online portal is a multimedia platform for young writers, artists and content producers to freely experiment and develop their creative expression or converse with the Vibewire Editorial Team.

Youthscape

Vibewire’s youthscape is the source for powerful and uncompromised journalism from the youth perspective.

Reelife

Vibewire’s Reelife Short Film Festival has become an established part of the Australia’s independent film calendar featuring up and coming young Australian filmmakers.

Vibewire has been named NSW Non-Profit Microbusiness of the Year, has been awarded the World Summit Youth Award for Community Engagement by the United Nations and had two board members recognised by Australian Davos Connections as the youngest recipients of the Future Summit Leadership Award’s in 2007. Founder and CEO Tom Dawkins was also named a YouthActionNet Fellow of the International Youth Foundation last year.
