Student-organised Industry Seminars
Each year students in RMIT’s Media Program conceptualise, organise, run and document a series of public seminar events in which a diverse range of established media industry practitioners are invited to participate in panel discussions about the state of the industry and also offer invaluable advice to aspiring makers on how to break in, the current ‘lay of the land’, and career pathway opportunities. The students are in their final semester* before heading out in to the world and it is a useful time to rethink possibilities for where they go next (and how), and to further build their industry networks.
Many thanks to our special guests who have generously contributed their time and knowledge.
