The Goa Project is an annual “unconference” that brings together a diverse set of people from various fields – to converse, collaborate and co-create. Attendees learn, share, and exchange ideas in a range of different formats.
If you have a topic, skill or insight that you believe is worth conducting a debate, discussion, talk, workshop on, go on and use the Funnel to propose a session for it. If you are a performer - be it a solo act, a band, a magician, or an artist, nominate your performance under the section performance. Performers will be given a slot in the evenings once the session wraps up.
We encourage attendees to vote on the proposed topics. The opinion of our event participants is a key factor while curating the sessions that make it into the final agenda.
We have a framework of tracks - Society, Design, Interactive Media & Cinema, Fringe, Music, Performing Arts, etc. and a separate track for workshops. These are defined as sections in the submission form, we may refine these tracks/sections in the next step of the funnel with YOUR contributions.
Topics related to religion and politics are not accepted. For your proposal to be considered you need to complete the Delegate Application form here https://goo.gl/forms/gXMi5hPmjWEfq8fz1.
How to keep your mind sane when tough gets tougher
Last year I spoke about reading 52 books in 52 weeks at TGP, I have had few lessons over time from reading and with life on how to keep yourself sane when thought gets going based on my recent article in Entrepreneur.com
I like share my experiences and probably help you with getting a more sane mind when thought gets going. Life has humour in its own ways, if you try to be too comfortable(basically not trying anything new) you will be slowly provoked with thoughts of exisiential questions(which is okay) or you will just start bitching about everything around you. On the other hand if you do try out new things, you will face new problems and will be drawn to uncertainity which would inturn push you to anxiety and in some cases depression.
When things went in wrong direction for me in all possible ways, there are few things that really worked for me (cheat sheet: - one of the step in controlling your inputs and knowing how), Based on my reading and few practicle things that really worked for me, I wrote an article in https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/318039 on same(and ofcourse I have more points for you). I would like to unwind my whole thinking process and give a first hand experience on the same 1st time only with you at TGP
Wanting to have a sane mind
active mind presence
wanting to speak up issues from their life(and probably how you go around(or not got around) it)
