"Life will show you masks that are worth all your carnivals."

Carnivals are not only gaiety spectacles, carnivals are also an outlet for the most powerful emotions that drive us insane. Also, masks are not always covers. Masks can also be the best quality that we flaunt out to the world around to empower ourselves.

The Fine Arts Society brings to you the Carnival Of Rust! So, get ready to put up the best of your artistic selves and flaunt your talents as it is just one day to go for the event!


"It's better to rust than to wear out"

So, don't walk away and gear up to join us as it is just two days to go for the carnival turning around the caravan of our souls that will never let us wear out!


Expressing something by using your words correctly is a way too straightforward way to express yourself. The challenge comes when you need to express an idea, a thought or even a message using an image. To convey something with just a little pictorial representation is where you must find the real creative in you.

So let that talent shine and bring out the very best of your abilities and ideas with our Online Gif Making Competition.

The theme this year is Women Empowerment so make sure you send us your online entries by 11th March 11:59pm as we await to be surprised by you in this year's Carnival of Rust.

You cannot spell women without 'men'. You cannot spell female without 'male'. But, you can surely envision and create a world with both in it. You can breathe as a man and respect a woman. You can work as a woman and ask to be paid like a man. Or, you could just live as a woman or a man and exist as a human. Be there for people, treat everyone like you would treat yourself on a Sunday and love others like you love binging on chocolates.

But, most importantly women must and must stand in solidarity with other women, like Kamala Das says in her poem:
"I have no joys that are not yours, no
Aches which are not yours. I too call myself I."

St. Xavier's College Fine Arts Society wishes you a Happy Women's Day and reminds you to stand by everyone with a bag full of love and laughter.

"Spoken word poetry is the art of performance poetry."

When poetry itself is a powerful medium for an artist, performance poetry proves itself to be a more powerful one.
We are fortunate to have been able to get someone like Sufia Khatoon as a mentor for the last workshop to be conducted under X-hibit.
Sufia Khatoon is the receiver of The Kavi Salam Award of 2018 and she is a multi-lingual performance poet. Her works have been recognized not only in India but also by several international anthologies of repute. She has also been associated with events like Yuva Sahiti Young Writers Meet in the Festival of Letters of Sahitya Akademi, Apeejay Kolkata Literary Festival and Ethos Literary Festival Kolkata.

So, drop by at Xavier Hall (from 2 to 4 pm) to learn how to create poetry that doesn't just want to sit on paper. Rather, something about it demands it to be heard out loud or witnessed in person.
