The Goa Project is an annual “unconference” that brings together a diverse set of people from various fields – to converse, collaborate and co-create. The entire agenda is crowdsourced, leading to two exciting days of talks, workshops, presentations, pitches and interventions. Run completely by volunteers who are passionate about cross-sector learning, collaboration and ideas.

From this year onwards, every alternate year, TGP will leave the comfortable embrace of Goa’s sandy beaches to manifest itself in another part of India to make the event more accessible to attendees from different parts of India. This year, we move to Casa Amore, a a luxurious private seaside villa nested in Alibaug, 3 hours from Mumbai.


The Goa Project offers a lively and uninhibited space for those who want to think, dream, interact and explore possibilities. Here, you will find:

Dreamers and Doers

Over 300 driven professionals who are Thinkers, Doers, Performers and Visionaries across arts, sciences, technology and various other disciplines.

A Creative Lab

An environment that inherently breeds new ideas and relationships, including learning, collaboration and even funding!

Crowdsourced Content

An “unconference” where the entire agenda is contributed and created by the attendees!

The Sun

So ditch that formal jacket for flip flops and gather in our colourful tents, with the grass beneath your feet and ideas exploding in your head.

TGP Residency

Do you have a project or business that requires expertise from a completely different discipline? Are you looking for collaborators or partners from another discipline who can diversify or otherwise expand your current suite of offerings? Then apply for The Goa Project Residency a.k.a TGP Residency.

The Goa Project is launching its first edition of the TGP Residency – a fully-funded interdisciplinary residency for makers, does, thinkers and performers. Participants in this fellowship programme will be paired with collaborators from at least two other disciplines for a week-long residential course focused on developing their project idea/ business. The participants will be taken through a structured, intensive training programme led by trainers, mentors and experts with expertise in the relevant discipline required to implement innovations that will advance their work. The residency’s goal is to help participants develop for their project initiative/ business a future action or business plan enhanced by cross-disciplinary inputs.

For the first TGP Residency, we are actively encouraging participation from persons with disabilities, or people working on offerings that increase accessibility and inclusion for persons with disabilities. The goal is to have at least one Resident who meets both criteria. The dream is a more inclusive world.
Come, dance with us?
