On the show this week (1)

We have these guys:

Vibewire Enterprise Hub, 21 July – 28 July.

, is an initiative of Oxfam Australia’s Youth Engagement team 3things, and works with design, communications and business students in their final year of study to create inspiring and innovative social justice campaigns, designed to create change.

Developed in 2007, the program has been successfully running in Sydney with UTS, UWS and Billy Blue students collaborating on a range of campaigns such as climate change and access to clean water.
This year’s projects focus on communicating and advocating for fair workers rights and better working conditions for people living in the poorest communities around the world.

Oxfam Australia is part of a global campaign to persuade sports brands to respect workers’ rights. Workers producing for companies like Nike, Adidas and Puma, commonly face low wages, long hours, verbal abuse, dangerous working conditions and denial of trade union rights.
Oxfam’s Labour Rights work aims to help workers, particularly women, build sustainable incomes, ensure that their rights are respected and that they have a voice in influencing decisions which affect their lives. We do this by supporting local organisations to educate workers about their rights and how to obtain them, and by campaigning to influence companies to respect workers' labour rights.
Please join us to open the exhibition and to celebrate the power of creativity, collaboration and Design4Change at 6pm, on Thursday 21 July, at Vibewire Enterprise Hub, 525 Harris Street Ultimo.

Industry guest speakers include:

Ben Peacock,
co-founder of Republic of Everyone

Matt and Pip,
Directors of the Loop.
