Wintec’s Ramp Festival (formerly Spark International Festival of Media, Arts & Design) is once again bringing an entertaining and stimulating week of presentations, exhibitions, and performances from leaders in the creative industries to the region in its 21st year.

This celebration of contemporary thinking kicks off in July (23 to 26) with a high calibre line-up of speakers from around NZ and the world. The festival brings together artists, musicians, practitioners, educators, professionals, academics, students, and the public, providing a great platform for dynamic discussion and sharing of new ideas.

Ramp Festival, organised by Wintec’s School of Media Art is open to all – Visit the website for the full programme of presentations and workshops held on Wintec’s city campus with other events happening in the heart of Hamilton city.

Step out from behind your screen and be part of this two-way exchange at these critical, and intimate, conversations. Share knowledge and fuel your curiosity at this week-long, creative experience.

The festival is free to attend and open to all, though there are limited places at each event. For entry, staff and students bring your Wintec ID and for anyone else get your Eventbrite Ticket at no cost here.
