    Description

    Dear Volunteer|s,

    The two of us, Steph and Shammi, just moved to Goa from Phnom Penh (we hosted there with Workaway too). Raj is from India and lived in NYC for 7 years. Steph is from Austria and lived in several countries including NYC where and when the love story began. This time we are not only starting a new adventure by setting up in Goa, but also starting a creative social business.

    Our project is a tech-art space to experience interactive, multi-sensory entertainment in India. Imagine a convergence of transformational festivals and tech-art museums. Our mission is to offer entertaining experiences that leave people with a sense of awe and inspiration. Visitors’ are led through the museum following a non-linear story-telling approach. The museum will be complemented with workshops & talks (STEAM), a niche tech product fair, related events & performances and an F&B area focused on taste hacking. This is a totally new concept in India and we would like to introduce the space with a bang.

    We are now setting up an amazing location in the heart of North Goa (700 sqm inside, 1200 sqm outside) and filling it with art installations, and much more. It will open doors for public in November 2019. There is loads to do and we are looking to reinforce our team here in Goa with additional talent, skills and energy. This is where you come into picture.

    We are a team of experienced professionals (10-35 years) who decided to change their path and start-up this unique project in various areas. We would certainly inspire inter-disciplinary learning, sharing and collaboration, depending on your interests.

    We are really excited and looking forward to add your talent to our local team to make it happen.
    lets talk ..

    Cheers, Steph and Shammi
