Throughout the year, Arena Animation organises various events including student-industry interactions, exhibitions of student work, seminars by industry experts, and hands-on workshops. These events give students the opportunity to explore their creative talents, meet senior industry professionals, develop their skills, and gain an insight into career opportunities in animation, multimedia, VFX, gaming, and the film industry. Students also participate in national & international-level competitions which allows them to compete against the best in their field.
Arena's Orbit Live is a 4-day, mega learning event for students around the world. Arena students learn under the guidance of internationally acclaimed experts, practice on the latest tools & software, showcase their skills, interact with industry leaders, and get a chance to be counted among the best talents in animation & multimedia from the world over.
Kalakari is the first-ever event by the artists, for the artists in the training industry. Kalakari is all about experiential learning through traditional art forms. It is a colourful showcase of art, fun contests and handicrafts, and is steeped completely in creativity & culture. The event is truly an amalgamation of traditional art & culture and new-age technology.
Creative Minds is Arena’s inter-centre student competition, where students produce and showcase some brilliant work. Students conceptualise and produce films under the guidance & mentorship of their faculty. These films and projects are judged by industry experts, who then guide them & give them useful career tips. Creative Minds acts as the stepping stone to Orbit Live.
