I propose to introduce a Creative Conclave, a programme to motivate students towards visual arts and promote career options in these.
Being a Technical Institute, ample opportunities exist for the students to develop and pursue careers in technical fields, but very few avenues remain for them to pursue their creative talents. There are many students in campus who find their interests inclined towards visual and performing arts but couldn’t pursue them seriously due to the lack of guidance and lot of struggle. There exists a great necessity for these budding artists to be able to portray their talents and progress in this as career fields.
The Creative Conclave aims to provide these opportunities and the necessary motivation for the students to explore and master the fields of visual and performing arts. This would create a platform for them to portray, pursue and excel in their chosen field through proper guidance of those who already have stable grounds in these fields
The implementation of this proposal would be carried out in the following manner.
Various Alumni of this Institute have established grounds in various fields of art and are doing excellent in them. Moreover, Alumni are interested, as positive response were received from the alumni, viz. Mr. Prabal Mallick (Professional in the field of Painting), Mr. Ashay Gangwar (Co-founder, Camera and Shorts) to extend their hands of help to the interested students and nurture them so as to pursue their interests on a long term basis. The General Secretary, Students’ Alumni Cell, Mr. Bharat Chandra, was contacted with regards to the implementation of the proposal and he was positive in response to it.
The funds would be required to arrange the fooding and lodging of the Alumni to the Institute as well as the Audio Visual arrangements for the Workshop and Webinars.
I propose to buy the entire lights and sounds setup required in the conduction of various year round General Championship events, Open IIT events, Spring Fest events and other Society activities.
The setup would mainly include:
Here are listed some of the major events that use the entire setup:
Currently, we have been hiring all the above equipments from local vendors on a per-event contract basis which is costing us a huge amount on an annual basis. A one-time investment of buying this setup would prove extremely beneficial in the long run.
I have contacted the current dramatics secretary & entertainment secretary, the Pronites Coordinator of Spring Fest 2018 and a number of Society Governors. All of them have expressed their approval of the idea and are in support of implementing the same at the earliest.
Current Expenditure Estimates:
General Championships – INR 1,56,000
Open IIT – INR 36,000
Society Activities – INR 72,000
Spring Fest – INR 2,16,000
Estimated Cost of Setup:
Annual Maintenance – INR 15,000.
I propose to introduce an event in Open IIT namely - Mono Acting.
Spring Fest’s mono acting competition namely I Me Myself witnesses a huge amount of participation every year, thus introducing an Open IIT event on the same lines would be highly in favour of the student community’s interests. Moreover, the event was also a part of Inter IIT Cultural Meet GC and hence there is a need to promote this with a suitable platform to entire student community.
We have contacted Mr.Rachit Madhukar and Mr.Kacho Sohrab Khan, who represented IIT Kharagpur in the Mono Acting event conducted in Inter IIT Cultural Meet 2017 and they have supported the idea of introducing this event as an Open IIT competition and also expressed their willingness to take part in the same.
Budget of Mono Acting:
I propose to start a Youtube channel and an online coffee table book for improving the visibility and enthusiasm for the GC so-cult events.
The Youtube channel would have all the performance by all the halls of residence which would ensure that everyone can watch these events at their convenience.
Also, the coffee table book would have all the memorable moments of these events so that participants can preserve their memories with this book.
Most of the people, mainly 1st years, remain unaware about the Open IIT and General Championship Events. Hence, there’s a need for publicizing the event, to ensure proper participation. Also, there are lots of people who are not able to attend the events. So keeping preserves in the form of video recordings would increase the visibility of the GC so-cult events.
The already existing photography secretaries of various halls of residence and the Photography Secretaries of Technology Students’ Gymkhana would be responsible for the coverage of the events and uploading it on various social media platforms.
This is one of the prominent suggestions from various General Secretaries Social and Cultural of various Halls of Residence. They believe the efforts and the hard work involved in participation in General Championship events is going largely unnoticed. Hence, they have expressed their desire for implementation of this proposal.
