Unlike a boring Monday, it was a fun-filled and informational beginning of the week with the whole day dedicated to workshops and competitions at ‘Opportunities in Creative Industry’ – an exclusive session organized by Pearl Academy, India’s leading higher education institute in design, fashion and creative business courses, in collaboration with RG Degree College, Meerut, at its campus. The session was aimed at spreading awareness among the aspiring design students on immense career prospects in the creative industry along with valuable insights on entrepreneurship by the Experts from Pearl Academy.
More than 500 students of the college participated in three workshops – Fashion, Hair & Make-up and Entrepreneurship conducted by Pearl Experts Ms. Shalini Bisht, Ms. Anjum Bhardwaj and Mr. Tarun Pandey respectively.
Ms. Nien Siao, Director, Pearl Academy-Noida campus, shared her views and said, “Meerut is a city of immense talent pool. This collaboration with RG Degree College is an effort to tap the young minds and apprise them about the possibilities available in the field of design in India and abroad. We thank Dr. Seema Jain, Principal of the College for making this event happen. Also, would like to thank convener Dr. Kanchan Puri and Dr. Deeksha Yajurvedi for all the support extended by them. It turned out to be an extremely successful day for everyone.”
Dr. Seema Jain, Principal, RG Degree College, said, “Our students have tremendous potential and we consider it as our prime responsibility to channelize that in the right direction especially when it is about their career. We thank Pearl Academy and are glad that their experts gave their valuable time and advices to our students today. We wish all the best for our students.”
The day also witnessed two other activities – a Design Quiz and a Comic Design Competition. Students participated in both the activities enthusiastically and the top contenders walked away with prizes by Pearl Academy.
Pearl Academy will be back in the city on 1st February, 2015, and will bring one of its unique initiatives ‘Creative Career Conclave’ to the city. The conclave would be an eye-opening session for many of the attendants where the industry experts will talk about their share of experiences in the design world and much more beyond that.
