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.
Transitioning Back To The Future
Many of us see and perceive a lot that’s gone wrong with our cities, our economies, and our planet. The circle of concern is huge, and growing. What can the circle of influence be? How do we act on the concerns, and how do we create the opportunity for a saner future for the species?
A year and a half ago, I started The Farming Collective (now Beforest) to create a collective farm 80km outside Bangalore. As part of this, and in my travel to various parts of India, some patterns, problems and solutions have emerged. I’ve learned about permaculture (and am still learning how to make it work). And together we’ve created a beautiful community experiment that might provide at least some of the answers to our many questions about how we live.
