Pearl Academy, the leading art, design and fashion institute hosted the “Creative Careers Conclave”, in Mumbai at Nehru Enclave, Worli. The interactive programme witnessed a creatively charged audience wanting to know more about the dynamics of the world of art, design and fashion- as an education, a career and a creative pursuit. The eager audience witnessed a blend of parents and future budding minds. The workshop was attended by 250 students and their parents.
The event saw an esteemed panel of ingenious ‘art’smen from the world of design, fashion bibles, graphics and film making. The Sunday morning that went, experienced a crisp dialogue between the audience and panelists like Fashion Designer Narender Kumar, Fashion Critic Meher Castellino, prolific Graphic Designer Vikas Satwalekar and Producer and Filmmaker David James Baker. The creative amalgamation of dreams, choices and learning saw an artistically put together essay of vocations inclined towards the finer things of life.
Speaking about the workshop, Mr. Sharad Mehra, CEO, Pearl Academy, said, “With this event we mark our foray into the Mumbai market. We are looking forward to our journey in this city and the dream run the city poses in front of us. The event today has helped us reach out to the budding creative think-tanks of tomorrow, people who are waiting in the wings to create their footprint on the national map. We start our admission process in January 2014 and this was a good teaser for our prospective students”
Narender Kumar, Fashion Designer, said, “It has been a pleasure to be a part of such an inspired dialogue session organized by Pearl Academy. The future is here and it is an absolute must for people like me and the rest of the esteemed panelists to be a part of an event like this that brings us face to face with the gen next. Platforms like these bring together ideas, thoughts and potentially an answer to what lies next in this dynamic world of the finer arts. All that the budding aspirants of today need to know is that conviction is everything; you need to stand up for what you believe in.”
The event was designed in a manner that not only had the four gurus have the audience journey through their individual paths of aspirations, hard-work and artistic canvases, but also saw these creative advocates take small pit-stops to engage the audiences with work-life scenarios, interesting anecdotes and inputs from Pearl Academy’s alumni.
