Startup Goa’s Art and Design Meetup

Goa has created its own identity as a tourist destination, more than anything else. But for the past few years, it has been interesting to watch a latent rise in the amount of creative talent that this place can foster. Whether artists, designers, writers or musicians, Goa is a special place for many creative individuals to live, slow down and focus on the bare essentials of their work in the peaceful environs that it offers. Startup Goa’s Art and Design Meetups are a way to try and bring together this creative talent under one roof and create a dialogue between them. This month’s edition of the Art and Design Meetup took place at the Maracas Restaurant in Porvorim.
