“I studied Media Arts and Production at UTS and learned the foundations of my practice. I am relieved to see a revived focus on ethical and sustainable media practices, and believe that our screen industry will be in reliable hands if the new generation of storytellers are educated with this integrity as core to their study. Activism and entrepreneurship are often denied space in academia, and I am excited that this new masters will encourage graduates to contribute back to society in a meaningful way, to make the world better than how we inherited it.”
