Winter Fete, a pre-christmas flea market was organised at #AnantU by and for its students, staff and faculty. The event space was divided into 3 sections - Contemp-Flea, Art of Crepuscular, and Live Art.
As a part of the completion of the subject ‘Contemporary Architecture’, the students of B.Arch. 5th Semester put up the ‘Contemp-Flea’, that showcased their learnings in the form of products, like paintings, clocks, pen-stands, succulents, and more. All the displayed work was for sale.
Another exhibition 'Art of Crepuscular - a study of daylight in contemporary churches around the world' was put up by 2nd-year students of Architecture. They showcased their learnings on vertical panels in the courtyard.
'Live Art' was an initiative by the Anant Fellows wherein participants could use any of the art supplies provided to create their own art. Live music was orchestrated to set the mood of the enclosed space.
Apart from these, a food stall, a donation booth, sustainability centre's stall, and AnantU's official merchandise pop-up store found their spots in the Winter Fete. The event was attended by over 300 members of the AnantU community.

AnantU aims to be a #sustainable university campus, and one of the ways we intend on doing this is through responsible waste management. Instead of dumping solid waste into mini landfills that is not only bad for the environment but also smells awful, we believe best waste disposal practices should be undertaken by all members of the society.
To do our bit, we are installing trio bins across the university campus to segregate the different types of waste: food, plastic and others. The sorted waste will be used for different purposes, like turning the food waste into farm compost, and recycling plastic and other waste.
