The weekdays are so busy, lousy and commonplace in Ahmedabad. The weekend are no better save for a movie or an odd meal out. Don’t you sometimes feel like you need to Disconnect from the “real world” and it’s drudgery!
Students from IIM-Ahmedabad, in partnership with The Project Cafe and n conjunction with Insight 2015, the marketing conclave of IIM-A , are hosting a marketplace event – (quite rightly named) “Disconnect” on the 26th and 27th of September at their campus and we can stop smiling with glee :).
The event will begin its activities at 6 pm and will go on till midnight. The focus of the marketplace is to bring forth and promote design culture, and about motivating individuals who express their creativity in all its myriad forms. The artists at Disconnect will be the ones whose creative focus has been offbeat, different and tangential to mainstreams. The event promises to be a very unique experience with art, food, fashion, music and lifestyle coming together for two special evenings. Don’t miss out!
The thing we are excited about the most is that it also has a host of student designers from NID, NIFT, and CEPT displaying their art, giving a platform for these fresh out of design school minds to showcase their talent. The marketplace would house a wide array of products ranging from apparel, accessories to art and home décor. Apart from this, the most impressive factor about the marketplace is that it is a one of its kind event which quenches the thirst for good food, live music and lots and lots of fun along with fashion and lifestyle and the fact that it is being organised by the students of IIM-A in partnership with The Project Cafe. The event has been sponsored by Volvo and ACT Broadband. The event is supported by True Value, Avatar Management Services, MyFM and ClosetBuddies.
