The cultural meet, hosted by a different IIT every year, was not conducted for the past two years owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. Students from all IITs gather to celebrate cultural arts with events conducted by different clubs.

The closing ceremony will be held on January 11, 2023 to mark the conclusion of the tournament.

More than 3,200 students from all 23 IITs are taking part in this Fifth Edition of the annual event that was stalled for two years due to pandemic.

The goal of this event is to allow some of the brightest minds in India to display their skills and achieve distinction by participating in a plethora of events that enrich the cultural sphere of IITs.

The cultural meet would feature various events in the following categories: Literary Arts, Speaking and Comedic Arts, Theatre Arts, Dance Arts, Musical Arts, Film-making Arts, Fine Arts, Digital Arts, and Lifestyle Arts. E-sports and culinary events are the new events to have been introduced this year.

Chief Guest L Subramaniam, a renowned violinist, composer, and conductor and a Padma Bhushan awardee, inaugurated the Inter- IIT Cultural Meet 5.0 today (January 9, 2023) in the presence of Guest of Honour Professor V Kamakoti, Director, IIT Madras, Professor Nilesh J Vasa, Dean (Students), IIT Madras, Professor Arshinder Kaur, Advisor (Cultural), IIT Madras, and students from all 23 IITs.

Encouraging students to actively participate in the cultural meet, Professor V Kamakoti, Director, IIT Madras, said, “ The Institute is very happy to host this year’s Cultural Meet. India has a huge diversity in terms of cultural events. When we look at engineering, and in the last 21 years I have been teaching at IIT Madras, any engineer who has a deep introduction to an art, performs very well, especially in projects, research and reports. There is an element of grace, creativity and novelty that comes in there and that is what these co-curricular activities bring out in students.”
