FILM APPRECIATION

One of CYWEN's recently introduced activities is film appreciation, wherein we try to analyse & understand films as a means of communication. We view and critique both,mainstream and parallel cinema in presence of a facilatator. Our final aim is to incorporate our observations into our communication skills and media development.

THE CULTURAL TRAIL

The Cultural Trail conducted by CEE is an attempt to make us more aware of our rich heritage.There are two trails-'Ahmedshahi Ahmedabad' and 'Havelis and Pols of Ahmedabad'.Both are conducted on foot.

'Ahmedshahi Ahmedabad' takes us through the walled city and explains the significane of various historical monuments and points out the nuances in their architecture.

In 'Havelis and Pols', the houses of the rich mercantile community-locally known as 'havelis' and the community residences known as 'pols' are visited.
