What brings us all together at The Goa Project? A whole range of interesting conversations and talks, first and foremost. The way it works is simple – check out the funnel to see what the topics being proposed are, and go ahead and propose a topic you’d like to share! Remember, the topics are chosen by vote – all those attending and interested in attending will cast their votes on which topics they’d like to hear at TGP.
There’s no restriction on what you’d like to speak on, though we’ve broadly categorized the tracks into these six:
2. Fringe (Geekery and Life hacks) – covers technology as well.
3. Interactive Media and Cinema
4. Performing Arts and Music
We are excited to see the diverse and interesting topics and conversations that are sure to come about as different topics and proposals come in! This is what the event is all about – fascinating and unique conversations around a vast array of topics proposed by attendees, chosen by attendees and interesting to attendees.
The funnel to propose topics for The Goa Project 2015, is now live and ready for you: http://funnel.thegoaproject.com/2015.

Shilpa Sunderraj wraps up her experience of TGP 14 here:
“The speakers, participants, volunteers and organizers made The Goa Project exciting and enriching. Events were tracked into Fringe, Society, Design, Geekery, Workshops and Arts Media & Entertainment workshops or presentations. But what was truly inspiring was the content presented by speakers from diverse backgrounds; they were were also some of the most down-to-earth people I met!”
Jeeva Ann George on her unconference experience:
“Learnt so much more about sound, taking pictures, Art – The Lovely Priyanka Patel was so awesome. Paras and Rakhi had such lovely things to share that always interested me. Such fun to facilitate Kanan Dhru’s session! Thanks Kavita for asking me about in the first place. From food, to law, to geekery to just those lovely conversations with Nayana, Raghava, Edwin, Vinay, Neena, Nisha, Reshmi, Aarohi, PK, Priyashmitha, Shwetha, Shilpa, Alicia and our Photographer man – Vijay Varadan – who made me do full bollywood tree hugging and Siddharth Manoharan clicking away.”
Sunderesan Sekar on the unconference:
“The Success of Lucia, the first ever Kannada crowd funded movie and the keynote of Director Pawan Kumar deserves a special mention. This was one of the biggest takeaways of the event for me as the power of the people and the power of social media when rightly used can create magic was explained in a interesting manner. Really looking forward to watching the movie soon.”
Saravana on meeting interesting people:
“The Goa Project” is basically not a typical start-up/entrepreneurs conference, they call it “Unconference” meaning it consist of diverse tracks across various fields. You end up meeting people from various backgrounds like music, social, technology, etc. The event is organised by volunteers who have passion and interest in various areas. One of those great things about events like this is, you’ll be amazed how you end up meeting some of the people, whom you would have never met (or would not have a chance to meet).
So, to make it easier to share information, feedback, photographs and re-connect, we’ve created a Facebook page for all our TGP participants.
