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 Zines influence society
I love zines. Its a a form of creative expression, and it can entirely be a single individual’s contributionn. Its aking to blog, but only it is more creative and tangible. I often find zines communicating the voice of an activist. It creates a strong impression about a societal perpective. It motivates creative expression on a sensitive topic.
But I often find that it’s reach is limited to pop-ups. But that’s ok. Pop-up evennts invite people from various backgrounds. So these provocative zines are able to reach the common people as well.
With it’s provocative character, and pretty broad reach, I wonder how such zines channge one’s perpectives, and influence one’s lifestyles. I wonder how further can zines reach, and how can we use zines for deeper penetrationn of covnersations arounnd sensitive/taboo topics.
- What are zines
- History of zine creations & its various usage
- Examples for various zine artists in India
- What do they have to say about zines
- What does the future of zines look like
Therir listening aids.
I am prposinng this topic for someone else to speak. So hopefully a zine illustrator/publisher could be a good speaker for this session.
