The Communications Association, CommA, has officially announced their upcoming revamp which has been in the works for the last six months. CommA President Kyren Vanagan said that the organisation wasn’t representing the full student body in the faculty since it was initially designed for a much smaller group.
Kyren appealed to the future exec members of CommA, shying away from dreamy rhetoric that a number of organisations would ordinarily profess: “I will not say that student activism was this cathartic experience that granted me a life changing view or some heavenly experience, that would be disingenuous. However, it has granted me a platform with which I gained several opportunities that have helped influence my studies and work greatly over the years.” He also insisted that the only way to guarantee the success of CommA’s new wave of productivity would be through a new influx of members and commitment.
Professor Vince Briffa and Dr Gorg Mallia also spoke at ART having both contributed to the exhibition itself and the new direction of the organisation. This event is one of the events which we should expect again in the future, along with the organisation’s weekly Film Club events and potential opportunities with professional media houses and companies.
The following photos are a snapshot of what this exhibition, and MAKS students, have to offer:
CommA’s AGM will be held on the 7th March where the organisation’s statute shall be amended to outline the new direction along with election of the new executive board.
