Sebastian Barkoczy dabbled in many industries before he enrolled in the Advanced Diploma of Live Production, Theatre and Events (Technical Production) at the Design Centre in Sydney. From his first day, Sebastian knew he had found his true calling and a career was born.

Sebastian was recently given the chance to put his knowledge to the test when designing and building the stage and light show for the end of year graduation ceremonies at TAFE NSW - Sydney Institute. Using his newly acquired stagecraft skills he created a spectacular space for the students and their guests to celebrate.

Since graduating he hasn’t let the grass grow under his feet. Sebastian is currently studying lighting design at the National Institute of Dramatic Art, and his crowd-stopping installations in Sydney’s iconic Martin Place were featured in this year’s Vivid Sydney Festival.

Sebastian is excited by the future opportunities that are ahead of him and will never forget how vocational education and training unlocked his love of design.
