Event overview

Open evening is a chance for you to hear about what we do, why we do it and explore how learning can help you meet your aspirations. 

  • Meet and talk with the people who deliver our range of innovation focused, change-making programmes. 
  • Experience what it’s like to learn with us in a compact hands-on workshop
  • Hear from current learners and alumni about their journeys to ‘re-learn’ as working professionals 
  • Get your questions answered.

Join us at the Lab or online

If you’re Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland-based, we’d love to meet you in person. It’s a chance to see and feel the creativity of the learning space – it’s quite different to what you might expect.

But if you can’t join us in person, we’re running a hybrid format of the open evening online. You’ll get to participate real-time in the live events, listen and ask questions of alumni and learners and watch one to one interviews with the programme teams.

How the evening will run

After a day’s work, this will be a great way to spend your evening. Friendly, relaxed kōrero and interactive sessions, you’ll leave feeling energised and inspired for your next career step.
