Showcase shines a light on the work of Wintec creatives

Wintec graduating design students are ready to celebrate alongside communication, contemporary art, music and performing arts students, at their final year showcase

Wintec graduating design students are ready to celebrate at their final year showcase.

A new generation of creatives are revealing their work in the Wintec School of Media Arts 2020 Creative Showcase throughout November in Hamilton, with exhibitions, music, performing arts and a silent art auction.

Wintec School of Media Arts  Director, Sam Cunnane says these designers, artists, communicators, photographers, musicians, performers and multimedia students are diverse and talented.

“Our Creative Showcase is always an exciting window into the creativity of our students, and these events celebrate their talent. They also show our future students and the community what our students have been working on. This year has been incredibly challenging and these students have responded well, innovating and delivering despite the challenges of 2020,” says Cunnane.

This year’s events were launched with a Wintec production, “The Garden of Rikki Tiki Tavi”, continue with musical performances and culminate in a graduating exhibition where, for the first time, students’ artworks can be purchased in a silent auction.  

“We’re now seeing the results from students’ work from the Music and Performing Arts, Design, Contemporary Art and Communication degrees we launched in 2018 and 2019. These degrees were designed for a future world of work and our students are responsive and proving they are ready to join and influence the professional creative community,” adds Cunnane.

The events are held at Wintec Hamilton campus locations and The Meteor theatre and open to everyone.
