fastbreak is a series of rapid-fire talks co-created by Vibewire and the Powerhouse Museum. Every second month we bring together over 200 people to hear from 10 changemakers who are given 5 minutes each to share their stories and bold ideas.
fastbreak is more than just a series of inspiring talks – it’s a community event that brings together brilliant young minds in a festival-like atmosphere, with live music, workshops and a killer breakfast menu from our sponsors at Black Star Pastry.
fastbreak is the platform for you to collaborate and connect with experienced professionals from business, arts, media, technology, social justice and political backgrounds. It’s an opportunity to network with people both within and outside of your professional field – and who knows you may meet an industry professional to get your foot in the door.
Our guest-list attracts a passionate community of young creatives, entreprenuers, activists and students, so you not only get to hear from the best, but also mingle with the best.
Don’t miss out on the coolest event in town, it’s your chance to inspire and be inspired! Be the change that you want to see in the world, and let us be the Launchpad for you.
