On September 30, we held our first Fireside Chat of the academic year, where many students had the opportunity to ask the Chair of the RTA School of Media, Charles Falzon, questions regarding the school, industry or share any concerns. Charles started the evening by reminding students of some of the changes that happened over the summer including the creation of the Sportsnet RTA Production Centre in the Mattamy Athletic Centre and the launch of a new curriculum. Questions from the audience included advice on internships and ways to connect with the industry as well as, advice on how to balance school work and all the opportunities offered during the school year.
Charles continues to look at ways to continue connecting the industry with our students and has taken all feedback from this chat to discuss with the department. We thank all students who attended this important conversation and we look forward to others in the future. A special thank you to CURTAS for their support in this event, we love those posters!
