Through the course of the 2010 federal election, Vibewire, YouTube and a team of enthusiastic reporters, editors and interns worked together to produce fresh analysis of Australian politics. After a very speedy training period, the electionWIRE reporters started producing stories about the election. They travelled to marginal seats, they met candidates across the country, they talked to young people about the issues that mattered to them -- and made great media which broke with the conventions set by the big media players. This website archives all the fabulous electionWIRE videos and allows you to meet the team who brought it all to you. Enjoy!
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.
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.
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.
