Given the critical platform that a symposium offers in connecting like minds and people with common interests, The Weekender Republic (TWR) deems it fit to institute an annual symposium that would encourage and recognise creative achievements. Providing a forum for both emerging and established creatives, the symposium features a lecture and panel sessions on a wide variety of topics in the art, literary, cultural and entertainment spaces.

The symposium usually includes a guest speaker who delivers a lecture and three or four panel sessions. Each of the panel members are expected to write an article related to the panel he or she is featured in. The lecture and the panelists’ articles from the symposium would be compiled into a compendium, which would be made available to the public.
