Pearl Academy hosted another enlightening session of ‘Creative Career Conclave’ with a panel of well-regarded industry experts including AVP of Axis Bank and wife of honorable Chief Minister of Maharashtra Mrs. Amruta Fadnavis; renowned Fashion Designer Mr. Nachiket Barve, Ex Director of NID Ahmedabad Prof. Vikas Satwelkar and Writer – Producer & Faculty at Santa Fe University of Art & Design (US) Mr. David James Baker. The stalwarts from various career disciplines gathered to talk to over 300 students and parents about various options in the creative and design domain.
The two hour session with the industry experts was in line with Pearl Academy’s aim to guide and empower students with knowledge and perspective enabling them to assess their interests and career options. Pearl Academy has always endeavored to help students find their path in different avenues of creative industries and give the required momentum to the creative think-tanks of tomorrow. Each of the esteemed personalities addressed the students and parents attending the event.
Appreciative of this initiative by Pearl Academy, Mrs. Amruta Fadnavis, AVP-Axis Bank and wife of Chief Minister of Maharashtra said “I am glad that Pearl Academy is providing a platform such as ‘Creative Career Conclave’ which looks at addressing the queries that parents and students may have about the future they can look forward to, after pursuing a creative course. Most of the parents and students do not have complete knowledge of what the industry comprises today and what it has grown into. The changing economy in India and fattening career avenues in new age and unconventional domains such as design, advertising, fashion, creative businesses, media et al, in the years to come shall witness a great demand for skilled professionals in these areas. The only thing which is needed is passion to be able to pursue in depth whatever one is doing, which is only possible with due diligence and commitment towards your goals and ambitions. Creative industries are lucrative, growing exponentially and offering global career opportunities. The role of design institutes such as Pearl Academy in contributing to the talent pool of creative industries is appreciative.”
Mr. Sharad Mehra, CEO, Pearl Academy, said “Creative Career Conclave has now evolved to become one of the most intellectual platforms by Pearl Academy where the designers of tomorrow get enlightened on creative careers by the industry representatives themselves. Mumbai is a great destination for creative career options, and turnout at the event was massive. It is an incredible experience to see both students and parents show this level of interest. This reflects a growing acceptance towards creativity and we hope this continues in times to come. And, Pearl Academy has been and will always be committed to add value to the growth and sustenance of the creative industry and its torch bearers.”
