Spark Week is Wintec’s annual festival of media arts, speakers, and graduates who are leading in the industry the world over.
As a student studying Journalism at Wintec, our tutors are encouraging us to go along and blog about our experiences during Spark Week.
The graduate panel, taking place on Wednesday August 13th at the city campus, will feature 3 speakers who are working in journalism, PR, and moving image. All graduated from Wintec. This particular panel promises to be a big draw for students who can hear first hand the experiences students have had since graduating in their respective fields.
The other big event is screenwriter Drew Proffitt, award winning comedy writer behind House Husbands, speaking on Tuesday August 12th. This will be a big draw for writing students and those moving into television, moving image, and media arts in particular.
If you are lucky enough to be a member of the Wintec Press Club, this years guest speaker at Spark is none other than one of New Zealand’s most powerful newspaper journalists Rachel Glucina.
