There’s no stopping this Feat

SoMA Creative Showcase 2021


There’s no stopping the creative talent from Wintec School Media Arts’ tauira/students and this year, their work is being celebrated and shared in Feat for everyone to see.

Feat is Wintec School of Media Arts 2021 Creative Showcase where work from this year’s design, communication, music and performing arts tauira will be shared and celebrated over a series of events – pandemic or not.

Wintec Group Director, School of Media Arts, Sam Cunnane says every year a new Creative Showcase brings fresh work from the future stars of our creative industry.

“This year really has been a feat for all our Wintec learners, it’s the second year our year two and three tauira have worked through lockdowns, online learning and limited kanohi ki te kanohi or face to face contact. But whatever the level we’re in, nothing will stop us from celebrating the success of our Wintec tauira and all their hard mahi.”

Sharing work online is doable if less social, but Cunnane adds it is especially challenging for Wintec music and performing arts students.

“We're pivoting to online celebrations for our communication, art and design students but this week’s change to Level 2 has meant our music and theatre performers can now do what they do best - perform on the stage.”

Cunnane adds that despite the uncertain times we are living in, Wintec School of Media Arts is eager to recognise and celebrate our students' achievements and to share them with peers, whānau, and our creative community. 

The following events will honour Wintec School of Media Arts graduating classes and feature their amazing accomplishments. What a feat!
