The opening ceremony will take place on 14th January 2019, the first day of CARMA X, right after the registrations process is completed. We plan to invite renowned journalists, which will provide an opportunity for delegates to interact with them and get their insights. We also plan to organize a musical performance and a short skit in order to lighten up the evening.

Concert/Qawwali Night

A thrilling concert/qawwali is planned on the evening of 15th January 2019, the second day of CARMA X. This evening has traditionally been the highlight of our event, as it provides delegates with a much needed break from the competitive J-events. This year, we have planned to invite a renowned singer/qawwal to entertain us.


A food street is planned on the first day of CARMA X (14th January), shortly after the Opening Ceremony. It will comprise of stalls by various food vendors in the city, along with those set up by LUMS students.


Being the most awaited event in CARMA, the closing ceremony will be held on 16th January 2019, the final day of CARMA. During the ceremony, all award-winning teams will be honored, including winners and runners-up of individual Journalism Events, followed by the overall CARMA X Trophy.
