Dia Mirza inaugurated the new center, which can accommodate more than 80 students
Parul University inaugurated the Center for Design, Fine and Performing Arts. The center’s 5-storey building was inaugurated by actress Dia Mirza who expressed her opinion on the vital role of art and creativity in shaping cultures and transforming societies.
The building has been outfitted with numerous labs, including the abstract lab for design fundamentals and creative spaces such as tints, graffiti and murals.
“This aesthetically designed world-class facility is a perfect blend of architecture and nature to provide an ecosystem for creative inspiration. The first steps in every design aspirant’s journey at the Institute of Design begin with these spaces, as they lay the groundwork for exploring their artistic expressions. This center is expected to provide aspiring artists at the University with state-of-the-art resources and facilities to deepen their knowledge and skills in multiple creative fields,” said the University’s Director of Design and Fine Arts, the Dr. Prabhas.
Design students can also exercise their creative senses through hands-on facilities such as clay, wood, and metal workshops. While, for fashion enthusiasts, the establishment offers workshops such as “Brunnai”, a space dedicated to weaving fully equipped with looms. For adding color and brightening fabrics, ‘Chhaap’ is another handy space for apparel printing. Additionally, facilities such as “Avran” for garment fixing and Sanchana, a sewing space, are fully equipped with more than 40 singer sewing machines.
The design building has also been equipped with facilities and spaces for product design innovators to combine creativity and technology. A temperature-controlled machine lab was also created to pursue this goal, equipped with 3D printers and CNC machines, among other cutting-edge innovative design technologies.
This newly developed center includes an audio recording and editing studio, a music studio, movie theaters, animation and visual effects studios, and film studios.
