The COEP Annual Cultural Festival


Founded in 1854, the College of Engineering Pune (COEP) was the first institution to make Pune the “Oxford of the East”. Being the third oldest engineering school in Asia, CoEP has from time to time proven its tenacity and superiority in cultural events, winning laurels at prestigious events across the state and country. The Music, Arts, Dance, Acting and Backstage sections incorporate these creative ideas and aim to promote diverse innovation beyond conventional thinking, bringing out groundbreaking artists with talent, dedication and absolute perseverance.

Impressions – COEP’s annual cultural festival started in 2016 with the motto – “By artists, for artists”. The main objective of creating a cultural festival in an engineering school was to provide technically minded artists with a platform to showcase their talent and explore the limitless world of art.

With increasing attendance every year, Impressions continues to organize and conduct exciting workshops in different areas including mindfulness, creating online content related to the pandemic situation. Impressions is ready to outdo itself in its upcoming 6th edition through all unique events and competitions. Building on this solid foundation and the experience of the very first virtual and international edition, we have released the theme for this edition – “Impressions 2021 – An Indian Odyssey” revolving around the very vibrant culture of our own beloved country. . As Indian culture is one of the oldest and most famous among the different cultures in the world, it is an amalgamation of different traditions and customs and the way different communities present themselves and organize themselves in terms of morality and label.

We come from a country that preserves and teaches us the values ​​of remembering, staying connected to our roots and practicing gratitude towards our past. In this era of modernization, young people tend to fly across borders by instilling and imbibing the values ​​of the world. Influenced by the novelty of these cultures, one can very naturally tend to forget the nuances, subtleties and diversity of Indian culture encompassing many human values. Impressions 2021, takes this responsibility on its shoulders to guide the younger generation to immensely blessed Indian culture through our theme – An Indian Odyssey to Inculcate, Praise and Celebrate our vast culture and history.

Impressions includes seven main modules, namely dance, music, theater, arts and crafts, photography, scream and digital art representing the main art forms. To celebrate the artists who sleep in each of us, several competitions have been organized in a hybrid fashion. Impressions 2021 saw the inauguration with eminent actor, singer, director, producer – Mr. Sachin Pilgaonkar blessing the stage and giving the green light to this artistic extravaganza. Impressions has been partnered with various dynamic artists from around the world to hear their words of wisdom and experiences. We rocked the hearts of our audience with the sensational voice of the very popular Anuv Jain. Impressions has also collaborated with established artists like Mr. Shishir Sharma, Pandit Sanjeev Abhyankar, Tulsi Kumar, Julia Bliss touching all dimensions of art. By internationalizing ourselves and expanding our family of free spirits celebrating art, we also collaborated with Alexandr Misko, an impeccable freestyle guitarist from Russia.

Impressions this year, like every previous edition, aims to set a new goal, a goal of having an even larger community of like-minded individuals living in the artverse.

Join us on this journey on the 17the, 18e and 19e December 2021!
