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.

Fake news has become a disruptive force in societies around the world.
In India, rumours spread on WhatsApp are widely seen as a key factor in the mob killings. The scale of the problem has led to calls for the government to bring in new legislation and for some of the social and messaging platforms to add new functionality to combat the issue.
The violence has been blamed on rumours of child kidnappings, spread over messaging platforms and social media, which have led people to attack strangers. Media organisations, independent fact-checkers, law enforcement units and citizen-led groups are already devoting more resources to helping audiences understand what news they can trust.
we’ve launched Reality Check- Portfolio Tracker Team, specifically devoted to explaining the facts behind the news and debunking misleading headlines. We are working with various organisation to organise Hack-a-thons and Design Sprints to combact on this issue :)
