women's day 2021

To mark International Women’s day, MCAST has launched a campaign to celebrate women’s achievements across different sectors in arts, science and technology. Throughout March, we will be sharing inspiring stories about women in our community and the diversity and creativity in their work.

This initiative coincides with the College’s 20th anniversary, and we will be sharing twenty stories with the theme ‘owning our future’. It is an opportunity for our College to challenge and call out gender bias, stereotyping and discrimination. It is a message to our students to pursue their passion and persevere in their learning journey.

A group of final year Creative Media students interviewed alumni and students who chose different career paths and shared stories about breaking barriers and overcoming challenges. The students created their video stories under the guidance of lecturers Rosemarie Dorekens and Christopher Francalanza.

The videos are being shared on the MCAST’s Youtube Channel.
