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.
#MeToo and India
MeTooIndia has show us that we have failed and are continuing to fail when it comes to creating a safe environment for women in our workplaces. (As also our public spaces and homes, but that may be too vast a topic for a session at TGP.)
There is a law on sexual harassment in the workplace. How well is it being implemented? Why is due process failing?
Also, laws can deal with wrongdoing; they can stipulate things that should be done, pubish offenders, and so on. But to really fix things, we need to deal with root causes. How do we actively change our workplace culture?
Outline up to the session leader.
