Srinagar, Sep 5: The Centre for Women’s Studies and Research (CWSR) University of Kashmir on Monday organised an open-air creative art exhibition under the banner of ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’.
Vice-Chancellor Prof Nilofer Khan chaired the valedictory session of the programme, which saw participation of students from different teaching departments and University Model School.
Addressing the participants, Prof Nilofer, who went around to see the posters and paintings, said each slide is the expression of a feeling translated in the form of a painting.
“It is heartening to see students giving vent to their expressions through creative art to highlight varied concerns and issues related to women like domestic violence etc.,” the Vice-Chancellor said, congratulating the CSWR Coordinator and her team for organising the programme.
The CWSR, she said, must continue with such extracurricular activities to provide a platform to students to showcase their talent and, alongside, encourage others to develop passion for creative art.
Dean School of Arts Langauges and Literature Prof Adil Amin Kak and Dean School of Law Prof Beauty Banday adjudged the students’ artistic and aesthetic expressions.
The best prize winners and participants were honoured with medals and certificates of participation by the Vice-Chancellor.
