The camp began with a unique opportunity for participants to visit seven prominent industries in Jaipur, gaining valuable insights into the processes, techniques, and challenges within the creative sector.
Design Thinking and Prototyping
Over the course of the camp, students were divided into four groups, each tasked with tackling different design challenges and creating innovative prototypes. They applied various design thinking methods to develop their ideas and solutions.

This was followed by an insightful panel discussion featuring esteemed representatives from various institutions, including Sheffield Hallam University, Sapienza University of Rome, Estonian Academy of Arts, University of Lapland, University of Portland, The Design Village, and University of Antwerpen.
