About our committee

Our committee is responsible for the day-to-day running of the festival. It consists of students from Anglia Ruskin University and the University of Cambridge, and is over 50 strong. Members are all volunteers who apply, are interviewed, and are finally recruited at the end of each academic year.

What you see during the festival is only the end of a long, busy process of year-round organisation. Watersprite's Student Committee works tirelessly all year to make this massively complex and ambitious event happen, whilst balancing the needs of the festival with their studies and other commitments. 

Watersprite is currently recruiting the 2020 committee! Please find all details and the application form here.

About our Steering Committee

Watersprite's Steering Commitee works with the Student Committee to help build and shape the festival, with a focus on longer-term festival strategy, partnerships, and finance. Many members of the Steering Committee were previously Student Committee members who have gone on to have successful careers in the media and creative industries. They help as the students from one year pass the baton onto those from the next - offering advice and acting as sounding boards for new ideas.
