A Quick Glance at the Plan
Get more out of Goa than 99 percent of its tourists! This five-day edition of The Blank Collective has been curated to help you become your very own star. Learn the basics and the specifics of understanding music, playing the Ukulele, and writing songs in the exclusive masterclass of an actual music producer.
When in Goa, do as Goans do! Stay in a traditional Goan villa close to nature. Eat healthy, holistic, homely Goan food. Discover Goan folk songs and sounds. Soak up that Goan sun from a quaint little cafe that no commercial guidebook ever did mention. Listen to stories about its history that no tour guide will tell you.
And while you do all of this, get a sense of the true you. Challenge your mind with your musical mentor, challenge your body with your Goan exploration, challenge your tastebuds with authentic Goan foods, challenge your willpower with an electrical detox, challenge your perception of the Goan lifestyle with one-on-one chats with locals, and amidst this, challenge the views you had about what you can and cannot do.
Unlearn life as you know it.
