Performing Arts Careers Day


All Secondary School students in Victoria are invited to attend our FREE Wakakirri Careers Day event.

Careers Day is hosted by prominent Entertainment Industry Professionals who also make up the Wakakirri team of National Panel Reps

Your school is invited to bring along a team of students and teachers where you will be inspired, encouraged and informed about what it takes to succeed in the Entertainment Industry.

Industry professionals will reflect on their career, talking about career pathways that they have taken and discussing how the students can use event like Wakakirri to enhance their own career prospects.

“Thanks for the great industry day yesterday. The students walked away going ‘oh good, we are on the right track and we need to do this and this” – Hoppers Crossing College

“I just wanted to say how positive it was for our students. They came away feeling we were on the right track and really keen to get back into the rehearsal studio. It has allowed us to tweak a couple of our staging ideas with lighting and sets. So we had winners all round. Thanks again” –  Reservoir High School

Teachers are invited to bring a team of passionate students, who have an interest in learning and creating pathways into the performing arts world.
