Ten highly influential speakers from around Australia will have five minutes each to impress, inspire, educate and entertain – no pressure.

Jess Scully, festival director of Vivid Ideas and returning fastBREAK headliner, had this to say - “Creative people can – and will – save the world. We’ve got the skills, the passion, the radical point of view. When you empower young, creative people to use those skills they’re pretty much unstoppable – because they bring the vital elements of energy and optimism to the mix.”

Since launching in 2010, fastBREAK’s five minute format has showcased over a hundred creative changemakers and provided the inspiration for many more.

SAVE THE WORLD kicks off at 10am Sunday May 25 at the Powerhouse Museum, with breakfast and coffee provided by acclaimed cafe Black Star Pastry.

“I’m really excited about joining some serious changemakers at fastBREAK to share big ideas on how creative people can use the skills they hone every day to make an impact for social, cultural and environmental change. We sure need it right now.” – Jess Scully

Vibewire believes that young people should create the future, not just inherit it.

Vibewire was born on the streets of urban, inner city Sydney in 2000 as a dynamic connection point between young people and the arts, culture, business and ideas. A youth-led not for profit, we capture stories from within our urban communities transforming them into opportunities for young people to connect, create, innovate and grow. We ensure young people are included and can participate in conversations that matter. A team of energetic Vibewire volunteers drive our art, digital media, live performance and workspace projects.

We are a launchpad for young changemakers.
