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.
