The MCAST ICA Festival came about as a new approach to the annual exhibition held at MCAST’s Institute for the Creative Arts and is now in its fifth year running. By changing its tone of voice, the exhibition evolved into a creative arts festival. The philosophy behind and, consequently, the aesthetic of this festival varies according to the participating students’ vision, creating a sense of hype and anticipation from one edition to the next.
The MCAST ICA Festival serves as a bridge between MCAST ICA and the local arts and design community, illustrating all the work done at the institute. The festival celebrates the students’ creativity and honest, hard work while highlighting its relevance to industry stakeholders.
