|Campus and Culture
Government College of Art and Craft, Calcutta (GCAC), is a co-educational college situated in a picturesque campus covering 1.58 acres of eco-friendly land in the heart of Kolkata (park street area).
The location is well-connected by public transport: bus, taxi and metro. The landmarks of central Kolkata: Indian Museum, Asiatic Society, Victoria Memorial, Academy of Fine Arts, Rabindra Sadan, St Paul’s Cathedral, Birla Planetarium, Maidan, Park Street and New Market all are in a walking distance.
Art exhibitions, interactive workshops, cultural functions, film shows, social services, get-together and sports are the integral features of GCAC life. The Annual Exhibition & Annual Social of students and the Alumni day have become a winter fest in Kolkata since decades, for the artists and art-lovers.
Life in GCAC is always remembered by the students, long after passing out with their professional degree. The sweet memories of being with creative work, entertainment, knowledge and the rare experience of meeting world-famous personalities at the same time, pull them back to this age-old campus. Some of them come back as teachers, some as dignitaries and the rest for their nostalgia. Some remain life-long friends and some, of course, tie their knots as life-partners.
We have a Student’s Union without any interference of political parties, a healthy feature, very rare in Kolkata campuses. We have an affordable canteen and a provisional art-material store too. The culture of GCAC campus is metropolitan with a fine tuning of Bengali lifestyle and moral values. It helps everybody to enrich their lives with an artistic taste and understanding that make a complete personality.
