Events

When it comes to launches, festivals and celebrations, one size doesn't fit all. MediaWise develops bespoke campaigns, and the results speak for themselves. We promote and manage events.

Events

MediaWise is known for its creative approach to events. We plan, deliver and promote events for many different purposes. 

Our most recent successful event included organising four major village events for the 150th anniversary of the Old Colonists' Association of Victoria. We worked with older Victorians to shape events that were appropriate for the organisation, including a travelling history road show. The events attracted over 3,000 people.

Past events have included:

Opening of McAuley House

We planned and executed the launch of McAuley House, a refuge for women experiencing homelessness run by McAuley Community Services for Victoria. The event had many prongs including a cocktail party  that was centred around a journey which took supporters from the horrors of homelessness through to hope that they encounter after being supported by McAuley. The event also included  hard-hat tours during the building stage.

Good Shepherd Festival Day

MediaWise was contracted to project manage Good Shepherd Festival Day, this a celebration of 150 years of the Good Shepherd Sisters' arrival in Australia. We worked with a team of staff, volunteers and other professional contractors to develop a day that offered something for everyone.  We oversaw the program development, including tours of the Convent by the Good Shepherd Sisters, two exhibitions, music, children's activities and an Expo of the Good Shepherd Network. We oversaw the commissioning of a plaque for the Sisters and its installation in the Good Shepherd Chapel. We developed and wrote marketing materials for the Festival Day including the program, web copy, media releases and other promotional material. We liaised with all relevant emergency services, the venue staff, cafes and others to ensure smooth and inclusive logistics on the day.

Awards

We've been engaged to promote many different Awards over the past 20 years including Diversity at Work, the Victoria Prize and Fellowships and the Premier's Health and Medical Research Awards.  Each of these include: interviewing the winners, writing and editing copy for booklets, media releases, speech writing, media training and media liaison.
