LaVolta - Recruitment for the Digital Age

The Digital White Party Christmas celebrations!

We know it’s a tad early for this but it actually takes some organising and we’re particularly committed to making this one fantastic as it’s a bit special to us - it’s The White Party’s 10th birthday. So please get in touch if you are keen to sponsor the party in one form or another as we need your support to make it a real doozy.  We’ve locked in the Sydney date for Thursday 29th November - location secret!

Digital Bullets Series 3

We’re about to kick-start our 3rd series of Digital Bullets and we'll be interviewing some leading industry figures, asking each one to give us a twenty second response to a series of topical questions focused on issues, predictions, challenges and opportunities for the digital sector.   Then on a regular basis we’re going to release a Digital Bullet, a sizzling little web broadcast featuring punchy and diverse ’20 second points of view’ on the same topic --  from the intellectual property and patent wars, x-platform content, apps, to the NBN and more…

We recently met the two founders of I-Manifest and think everyone creative should know what they are trying to achieve.

I-Manifest empowers underprivileged and rural teenagers by exposing them to a realistic future in creative industries.  In Australia today, particularly in underprivileged and rural communities, there is still a strong perception that creative jobs aren’t ‘real’ jobs. Many teenagers are never exposed to the possibility of a creative career because the emphasis is placed on other areas such as agriculture, trades and sport. Many talented creative young minds are left either dis-engaged in the education system or ostracized from their family and peers. With intervention and exposure to creativity I-Manifest can expand the horizons for these students, keeping them on track so they can be the best they can be.
