Connaissance is the Annual Literary and Debating Festival organised at Institute of Law, Nirma University, Ahmedabad. What began as a student initiative to inculcate among the young masses a spirit of literary enthusiasm; has now become a mission not only to highlight the importance of literature, but also to successfully put forth a platform for the youth to develop new ideas, beyond a literary sense.
Connaissance is envisaged with a view to put forth ideas, which are not only literal, but are also in metaphoric forms, such as art.
Within a span of 8 years, Connaissance has created for itself a niche among the top literary events pan India. This, along with quality entertainment, is our promise to all those who come to join us in this event. We have previously played host to esteemed guests like Mr. Piyush Mishra, Terribly Tiny Tales, Unerase Poetry, Airplane Poetry Movement, Archer Art Gallery and the like.
Our National Debate and Youth Parliament is a buzz among participating colleges and universities such that it ranks among the top-tier of events which are organised on the same lines. Also, under Connaissance, we host National Quiz that attracts not only huge local participation but also participation from various law colleges across India.
