At Vibewire, we get to meet and work with some of the most talented and passionate young people in Sydney – designers, entrepreneurs, producers, activists, musicians, freelancers, campaigners, consultants, you name it.
What sucks is that they don’t get to meet each other.
Working on your bedroom floor or at the local cafe, you don’t get to meet people who could help you with your project, be that with their time, their ideas or their networks.
Talk to anyone who’s started a project on their own, and they’ll tell you how important that support and feedback is.
That’s why coworking spaces have popped up all over Australia and the world – to get freelancers and entrepreneurs out of the house and into communities where they can collaborate, expand their networks, and stay motivated on the often lonely journey.
Vibewire has run a coworking space on Harris St since 2006. In 2015 we did something radical with it.
We refurbished and relaunched the coworking space in March, with membership at just $50 per month – hundreds of dollars cheaper than every other coworking space in Sydney.
Home to a community of do-ers of every type, the common room is exclusive to 28s and under.
We aim to bring together a cohort of people who are in the same boat – staring down their 20s, figuring out what’s what, but knowing one thing for sure: that they want to work on things that make them happy.
Now, don’t get us wrong – there are plenty of opportunities at the Common Room to network with and learn from experts across all industries. But the core of the vision is about connecting young guns with young guns; giving each member a diverse network of up-and-comers.
Vibewire was founded to be a launchpad for young people, and what better way than to provide a cheap, central community space to meet other movers-and-shakers, and make shit happen.
Welcome to the Vibewire common room.
