The Vibe Collective won in a highly competitive final, pitching their business plan to judges from The Big Issue, the professional services firm PwC, and the social development enterprise organisation Social Traders. What problems do we see in our community?
What impacts us directly? If some of these factors are compromised, it will make things significantly harder for young people trying to build up a network and develop the right skillset in order to secure a job.
They need these social pathways, not just to form personal relationships at home, but also to make a difference at work, interacting with colleagues and forming meaningful relationships.
In the eyes of the Vibe Collective, this issue is symptomatic of a bigger, intersectional problem. When the trio started looking around their community, they noticed that people in their age bracket were having a harder time meeting people than their counterparts in a city like Melbourne, or Sydney.
They mainly engaged with friends through online platforms, and their social lives became more virtual and stagnant. The unemployment rate cemented this trend, by closing off one of the major community pathways to meet people. By having three different delivery options for our events, we want to give people the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in the event industry while meeting new people at the same time.
The response was overwhelming, and it became apparent that they had tapped into something the community really needed. By organising live music events as well as workshops the group hopes to make a big social impact in the long run, equipping their members with the skills, knowledge and confidence they will need in the workforce, while also giving them the networking opportunities they will need, being young.
Usually when we organise events like this, people feel shy at first — arriving in duos and being a bit awkward, but by the end of the day, everyone is swapping numbers. The good thing about a forum like ours is that it has a low threshold — you know that everyone is there to have fun and to connect with each other.
