25th Foundation day(09-09-21); Commencement of Silver Jubilee Celebration of Arena Animation, Geeta Bhawan(HID)

“The most important thing is not just winning but being part of the process; the crucial thing is not just conquering but fighting well.” At Arena Geeta Bhawan, we feel that winning is not everything. As we Celebrate 25th foundation day, we look forward to redefine the success. Real Success in our view is developing Champions in life for our world.
As leaders, we can no longer lead from a place, where winning is our only metric of success. It’s absolutely possible to produce and train champions in life, in every simple walk of life without compromising the human spirit. It starts with defining success and then consistently self examining whether your actions are in alignment with your goals. At Arena Geeta Bhawan, we as well as our Mentors in their capacity have collective responsibility to develop champions in life for our Creative World. That is what real success looks like.

Arena Animation Geeta Bhawan is proudly accomplishing its journey of nearly 9000 days on 9th of September’2021. It has been a journey fully rewarding & filled with many challenges. Our continued success comes from our three biggest assets: Our employees, existing & past students, and our value system.

Arena Animation, Geeta Bhawan (Horizon Institute of Design) was founded in June 1997 and officially launched on 9th September 1997. Initially we comprised of just our Founder Sanjay Khimesara with unwavering support and help from our Co-founder Ms. Aekta Khimesara. We were the pioneer in Central India. It was a big challenge to spread the awareness & build the community in Visual Communication. But we possessed a well-defined vision, confidence and eagerness to spread the Cheer. After all these years of relentless work we remain just as focused as when we started, but have gained much more experience, and strengthened our skills and our collaborations. As a Vocational Training Provider, our biggest satisfaction is to develop Champions, who are able to face growing challenges of the industry and become solution provider in creative Arena. We are super proud to contribute our bit in having a positive impact to over a million of people. So many of Champions shaped by us have made us and our nation proud with their talent & amazing achievements. We feel the joy & satisfaction in their exponential growth & progression.

To our students & alumni: Thank you so much for committing to us for so third decade in row and making us the most trusted Training provider of AVGC(Animation, Vfx, Gaming, Comic) Sector. We are honored to have your trust and will work tirelessly to continue to deserve it.

To our employees: We are beyond grateful for the opportunity to work with such talented, dedicated and passionate people every day.You are the real contributors in nation building
