Casa de Goa Convention in Lisboa-14th/16 April 2007

Posted By: "r.barreto" <>
To: "Goans_Tanzanite" <>;

Casa de Goa , in Lisbon , intendeds to hold a CONVENTION bringing together Goans from all over the world to spend a weekend in Portugal discussing issues of common interests.

We wish to celebrate the many positive contributions Goanshave made to the countries in which they have lived formany years and where their children were born and brought up.

Since we have no idea of how many people would be interested in joining us , we thought it better to post this initial information beginning a consultation process that will enable us to identify the number of delegates willing to participate and also to present and share their experience in the reception countries.

1. Dates: 14th/16 April 2007

2, Venue : Lisbon or a neighboring locality ( depending on the number of participants)

3. Aims
   -To celebrate the Goan diaspora and the contributions to the societies in which we live.
   - To reinforce second and third generation Goans in their efforts to keep Goan culture alive.

4. Delegates

Delegates should be nominated by legally constituted  Goan associations. Since 2nd and 3rd generation Goans are expected to make a huge contributions to the discussion , we would greatly encourage each association to nominate 2 representatives from different generations.

5. Themes

We would be very glad if some of the participants would be willing to make presentation in order to share their creative experiences in fields like: Fine arts, Literature, Music, Education, Entrepreneurship, Media, Information Technologies, Volunteering.

We are not not a research institution and therefore we do not wish to promote an academic or scientific event. What we really want is to organize an interactive dialogue to share our achievements , on one hand, and to encourage our children and grandchildren to hold the torch of *Goanity* alive in the future whatever that might mean in different economic , social and cultural contexts,

We are in the process of negotiating a full package for the weekend but we have to know how many people would need hotel booking.

6. Contacts
We would be very grateful if potential participants would indicate their interest by dropping us a line to Casa de Goa's email address , during the month of November

Many thanks and we look forward to hearing from you.

President of the Board of Directors.
