About the Festival
TNOC Festival pushes boundaries to radically imagine our cities for the future. A virtual festival that spans 5 days with programming across all regional time zones and provided in multiple languages. TNOC Festival offers us the ability to truly connect local place and ideas on a global scale for a much broader perspective and participation than any one physical meeting in any one city could ever have achieved. The TNOC festival will take place from 22-26 February 2021.
The Garden is a lushly imagined virtual space at TNOC Festival hosted at Topia where radically imaginative energy flows into interactive activities. The Garden is a program of TNOC’s FREIC (Forum for Radical Imagination on Environmental Cultures) produced by curators Carmen Bouyer, Patrick Lydon, M’Lisa Colbert, and David Maddox.
The Garden is where festival goers unleash their creativity, join fun and informal group events, practice mindfulness and wellness, join arts sessions, and conversations. In the Garden we are at rest and at play enriching our experiences, ideas, and actions as diverse urban actors. The Garden is an open and safe space for communing, for chatting, for creating, for regenerating, for re-learning and re-emerging. It’s a 24-hour garden party at TNOC Festival!
