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.
Waste No Love!
We eat, sleep and repeat daily without regrets, i aint talking about falling in love. Its about all the waste we generate from the time we take a dump to when we get dumped with a bouquet of flowers in our face. Alot happens in between, for instance we write letters then we post em post to which we wear great clothes and eat good food, all until our cycle of love is complete. However something thats wasted more than time and can be refurbished in multiple ways is the waste that comes out of it. All that waste is nothing less than a piece of art, made out of true love. Aint that true?
This discussion is for wild ideas from textiles, leather, food, paper, plastic, air , water and just about everything that makes waste and can be made in to something more valuable than it ever was.Love opens a thousand doors, this one needs each one to open a few, to save the planet. Who loves them like no other :)
We can start off with a love story, as its a common ground and flag the waste generated at the end of the beautiful saga.
Can pick up one big fat indian wedding and showcase the face and the actual reality at the end to strike a conversation.
A conversation, where we talk about how it can be given another shape, a new face by taking responsibility for what we do in the name of celebration or an event or just about daily living.
Moving on to giving some small and some large pieces of cleansed sterlised digital and tactile opportunity to make and suggest a ton of ideas on a wall that can shape up the beginning of the new process called waste management in India. As swach bharat is not cornering things, its actually cleaning up and being sustainable with new processes, and great ideas to shape the new waste.
