POW WOW is an electrifying initiative by Pearl Academy that offers plethora of workshops for the young and shining minds who are about to unlock the doors to the world of creativity. A series of super crazy workshops welcomes the fresh incoming students with several multi-sensory activities, energetic and multidisciplinary workshops designed and conceptualized by the School of Foundation.
Started with Pow Wow for Freedom in 2014 which became Pow Wow Ping in 2015, this year’s theme is Pow Wow Zing. The concept of “Zing” involves performing tasks wholeheartedly, whilst also being adventurous, vivacious and energetic. People with “Zing” in them simply enjoy things, reﬂecting their approach to life with anticipation, enthusiasm and respond in a clever, intelligent, sharp and playful way.
THE WORKSHOP :
Through variety of workshops, we provide a platform to all the new entrants to nudge their creative nerves with multitude of questions and opinions related to the word ‘Zing’.
Despite being hyperactive and restless, there aren't any instrumental pressures of an 'end product' in these workshops. Some of the components of the workshops are puppetry, theater, clowning, street play, dance forms, music appreciation, gaming, creative photography, film making, creative writing, et al.
This year POW WOW will be held from 25th July - 28th July. Mentors from various fields of society, culture and specializations which is not academic led, will help in creating a more nurturing and learning environment.
THE PROCESS :
More than 1000 participants from four different cities will become a part of POW WOW ZING. The young participants will choose any one workshop according to their level of interest from 36 multi-disciplinary workshops. They range from history to activism, to singing, theater, drawing, sports, gaming and many more.
POW WOW platform consciously keeps the balance swayed in favour of young and emerging practitioners whom it invites as workshop facilitators.
The motto of POW WOW is to act as an ice breaker session for the new entrants into Pearl Academy, which understands the value of supporting young talent and enabling them to explore newer avenues.
