“A person without knowledge of their history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots.”
India’s deep cultural roots are its identity. Remaining connected to these roots, deeply ingrained in our identity, is vital to our existence.
Alas! In this modernized world, we are moving away from our roots. The variety, uniqueness, vibrance, and elements complementing each other despite their diversity are at the heart of Indian culture. With this thought and a propel of zest, Impressions 2021 unveiled the theme of this year’s edition – An Indian Odyssey.
The inauguration ceremony of this edition was graced by the presence of the ever-versatile actor, director, singer, and producer – the Chief Guest, Mr. Sachin Pilgaonkar.
This year, Team Impressions inculcated a two-day spectacular “Pop Culture Fiesta,” including various strikingly successful competitions. It incorporated every element of pop culture by fusing the comic and pop world genres, from movies and television to comics, games, cosplay competitions, and many more, which witnessed active participation from all over the world.
Each year, Impressions hosts 22 breath-taking cultural events over three days, enriching workshops, competitions spread over seven modules, namely Dance, Music, Acting, Arts N’ Crafts, Photography, shout out, and Digital Art, and larger-than-life pro-shows and concerts, creating an atmosphere of vigor and gusto. Considering the present challenging circumstances, Impressions plans to organize the fest in a hybrid mode involving one day of virtual events and two days of offline events.
Additionally, Impressions 2021 is incredibly delighted and honored to be under the esteemed patronage of the Indian National Commission for Cooperation with UNESCO (INCCU).
