About Us

Article-19 is the core festival of the School of Communication, Manipal. It was first organised by the students of the college over 15 years ago, and continues to be a festival that is student-centric, as embodied in the slogan:
“Freedom. Your Right.”
We here at Article-19, do not follow a specific code of conduct, nor do we strive to maintain a perfect standard of operation, because each new core committee brings with it a new set of ideas and experiences to the table. "Freedom. Your Right." is a principle that the fest is built on, and we uphold this principle by maintaining our 3 core ideals:

Open up!
John Doe


To dare to live on your own terms, express your unique identity with boldness, and free of doubt, is a fundamental feature of freedom. Each year's fest promises to be a different experience, based on the individuality of the new members inducted into the core each year.

Jane Helf


To be bold, to be dangerous, to be willing to make mistakes, to recognise the many ways one can take to achieve one's dreams; these are a few qualities that define our ideal of audacity, which guides the Article-19 team towards making the festival an exciting experience.

Joshua Insanus


The festival is the result of an equal balance of its function, and its values. The ideal of integrity is what leads us towards this balance. Unless the team stays true to the root value of Article-19, that is the freedom of being, the festival as a whole cannot be realised.

We look forward to serving you.
