Kani: A Cultural Gathering is the intercollegiate arts festival of the English Association,Jai Hind College, founded and manifested for the first time on September 11th and 12th, 2015. Kani emerged from a collective, deep desire to create a college festival that truly allowed every person to explore his or her creativity in a non-judgmental space. The festival’s spirit was the elimination of competition and it was designed with two days of deep and spontaneous exploration of theatre, music, fine art, film and literature.The events were bold, creative and unconventional - designed to help students experience intuitive art and expression. The aesthetics of the events were crucial to the space.The beautiful indie atmosphere, set up with fairylights and sari-wall-hangings,was extremely well received, allowing people to enter a completely different space..
Students from colleges across Mumbai attended the festival, on an individual basis, to reinforce the spirit of non-competitiveness. Students from Whistling Woods, Wilson College, K.C. College,St. Xavier’s College, Sophia College, Mithibai College, and more attended the festival. Kani was an idea of a space, where expectation and competition would not dilute the expression and experience of art. It manifested in the form of a college festival put together by the efforts of a student body committed to its idea, and was made hugely successful by the large number of attendees and an overwhelmingly positive response. In the years to come, Kani aims to expand this ideology and impact for everyone involved, and to leave behind an even greater experience.
