The students touched upon topics that resonated with their Social, traditional, environmental, historical  causes.

Brief About the Theme

This year’s theme was Curator.The traditional definition of a curator is someone who takes care of a museum collection. The modern definition of a curator is someone who cares for something enough to study it, collect it, improve on it significantly and communicate it interestingly before an audience. A modern-day curator is a bridge between the idea he is passionate about and an audience eager to know more about the idea.
