Massey College of Creative Arts Wellington On-Campus Experience Days

Posted on April 1, 2021

The Massey University College of Creative Arts has a student Experience Day on Wednesday 28th April, on campus in Wellington. There will be two Experience Days during the year, the next one being on the 8th June (registrations for that one will open in May).


Experience Day is a one-day on-campus experience where students can choose ONE workshop from design, fine arts, film or music. The purpose is to introduce students to the CoCA campus and allow students to engage with the act of making, see the facilities and meet the staff.

Target Audience 

Year 12 and 13 high school students interested in art, design, film, and music.

How to register and schedule

Students are asked to register through Eventbrite

The schedule is also on the Eventbrite listing.

Registrations close on 21 April.

Spaces are limited to approximately 20 per workshop.

Accommodation tours and portfolio reviews will be available at the end of the day.


An eDM has been sent to teachers (Art, Design, Tech) Wednesday 31 March.

An Event listing will be placed on our Facebook page.

A link to the Eventbrite is on the website.
