DraftCraft International's TEASERS (Talks, Exhibitions, Art, Shows, Events, Readings, and Screenings) have now arrived in Mumbai and this time with a special segment on Goa - 'Goencho!'
If you are a Goan living and working in Mumbai and missing the quintessential ferry ride, the fish fry or the Susegad; or a Mumbaikar in love with Goa and everything Goan; or simply a traveller who happens to be in Mumbai and is sensitive about problems that wreak havoc at popular tourist destinations like Goa... make it a point to attend DraftCraft's specially-curated News Exhibition on Goa - Goencho!
For more than a decade, DraftCraft International has been working in Goa through its team of researchers, volunteers, writers and lawyers and tackling issues of tourism, culture, crime, diplomacy, heritage, development, transport and state pride. We share our findings and work through TEASERS held at venues across India.
When can I come to see the Exhibition? In its first phase, the exhibition will be open to visitors as follows: - Every weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) - From 14 February 2020 to 15 March 2020 - Timings: 4 pm - 9 pm - Entry on RSVP only.

Are there any special segments for those who wish to know more about the exhibition and the issues affecting Goa?
