Media Arts Events

The school of Media Arts hosts a variety of events throughout the year. From Spark Festival in August to regular exhibition openings at our contemporary art gallery Ramp. We celebrate our graduates at the end of every year with our Graduate showcase event at Wintec's city campus. We often host workshops, presentations and seminars with industry speakers on campus. Music events like Piano and Eggs and Wintec Presents are ongoing and happen on a regular basis, however themes and performers change. We love connecting with our creative community and all of our events are open to the public.

We welcome you to stay up to date by following our Facebook Events page and our Media Arts blog

Graduate Showcase Events

Every year we hold End-Of-Year Exhibitions that showcase the best work from our graduating students. We open this event to the public and invite you to join us to celebrate their success in viewing, listening, absorbing, and experiencing their works.

This event is a great chance for you to visit and gain an insight into the opportunities and outcomes that Media Arts Wintec provides.

Stay tuned for 2017 exhibition dates.
