Glimpses of Abhikalpa@SSD, Sushant School of Design, Ansal University with renowned designer Alex Davis, Indi Store… celebration of student work! The program on 24th and 25th May 2019 commenced with presenting awards and recognition to students based on categories of Excellence, Value and Participation in the student council.

Sushant School of Design, Ansal University were given an opportunity to work on a project with an organization IAMGURGAON and Municipal Corporation of Gurugram. The project “WHERE DOES IT GO?” looked at the problem of waste and our role in creating it. Waste poisons everything – our air, our water and the soil. We buy, we use, we throw. How often do we think where does it go? What is our role? We send 220 trucks of garbage out every day and our landfill in Bhandwari is overflowing with 25,000 MT of waste! The “Where does it go?” Initiative taken by IAMGURGAON focused on building more awareness around the mounting problem of waste through the medium of art. Well-known artist ARUN KUMAR HG lead this with a team of 12 local artists. They built an immersive installation using waste over 10 days. Students got the opportunity to learn from, and work on Gurgaon’s first large public installation that is focused on an important social message for the local community.

Sushant School of Design was pleased to welcome and take the opportunity to have an interactive session with London based interior architect Shailja Vohora. She has over 30 years’ experience, drawing her inspiration from her time at the Inchbald School of Design and history courses at prestigious institutions such as Christie’s, Sotheby’s and the School of Oriental and African studies. Her interest in philosophy, history, culture and the arts from all over the world, resonate in every interior she creates.

Sushant School of Design, Ansal University organised an event focused on creating awareness towards making Khadi a global fashion fabric, which has a fascinating history of being a symbol of India’s Freedom Struggle. Events like these are instrumental for the upliftment of Khadi weavers creating sustainable employment and better living conditions. The event saw students walking the ramp, wearing the fabric that breathes and personifies a worldview of the past and the future. To felicitate this event, we had amongst us: Major General Bakshi, a decorated retired Indian Army officer from Jammu and Kashmir Rifles, awarded Vishisht Seva Medal for commanding a battalion in operations in Kargil and a recipient of the prestigious Sena Medal for distinguished service.

With representatives from over 60 schools across India over 3 days, the Mahatattva event at the Ed Tech Summit 2018 – SSD Ansal University, was a tremendous success! The ‘Design Thinking for Social Change’ projects were a notch higher than ever before….here’s wishing more schools join us next year to make this world a better place, not only because we think but also because we make it one.

STEM education curriculum followed by schools in India was incorporated with “A”as in arts and creativity .Thus, making the STEM curriculum a “STEAM” curriculum. Due to its inter-disciplinary and applications based approach, STEAM brings out essential life skills, creative skills, critical thinking, communication and collaboration.

Sushant School of Design, Ansal University with Arts University of Bournemouth, UK showcased award winning costumes inspired from the 1950’s era. These costumes won the Queens Excellence Award for higher education.

This event was jointly organised by British Business group at The British High Commissioner’s Residence. The image shows international design gurus and advisory board members of Sushant School of Design discussing new avenues and opportunities for design students.
