A window into the world of Wintec Media Arts students

Wintec Media Arts students will present their work in Creative Showcase from Monday 18 November in Hamilton
The creative talent of Wintec Media Arts students will be on show when this year’s Creative Showcase opens from Monday 18 November in Hamilton.


A new generation of designers, photographers, artists, musicians, performing arts and multimedia students will reveal their work in a series of events at Wintec and in Hamilton's CBD, before many leave to join the professional creative community.

Head of Wintec School of Media Arts Sam Cunnane, says the open events give a snapshot into the quality and the talent demonstrated by this year’s students.

“Our Creative Showcase is a celebration but it’s also a revelation,” says Sam.

“I really encourage anyone thinking of studying any of the disciplines to join us because the Creative Showcase is an interesting window into the work our students have done this year.”

This year’s events include a music and theatre showcase, exhibitions, a film screening and Wintec Communication students will bravely pitch their work Pecha-Kucha style to local communication and PR specialists who can take the opportunity to network while meeting future talent. The events are held at Wintec Hamilton campus locations and The Meteor theatre.

The Creative Showcase events are as follows:
