All the way back in April (we can't quite believe where this year has gone!!!) I-Manifest launched their first-ever fundraising event - The I-Manifestival. Over 300 creative industry professionals showed their support on the evening and raised a massive $8,000 for the charity, enabling 130 high school students to attend I-Manifest STUDIO at Vivid Ideas (more on that soon!).
The concept was to take over the lane way & gallery space of Ambush Gallery in Waterloo to create an epic STREET PARTY with amazing food by Sydney's best Food Trucks – Al Carbon ('Sydney's best tacos, Good Food'), Tsuru and Yullis, beverages galore, a Kopparberg Inspires live art and music installation, 3D mapping by Astral Projekt (Vivid Lights 2013), and a superstar all girl DJ lineup: Arianna Hall (Modular) Kali (Picnic), Gabby (Finely Tuned), R.I.A., and Ray Ray (Moving House).
