TNOC Festival is knowledge-centered, knowledge-led, and action-driven. TNOC believes that knowledge comes from many sources and pushes boundaries of transdisciplinary thought and placemaking to reimagine our cities for the future: science + practice + art.
TNOC strives to promote sharing, learning, exploration, and action that advance communities that are resilient, sustainable, livable, and just.
TNOC Festival is a series of connected events from April to June 2024:
ten days of virtual programming (across time zones in multiple languages) and a four-day workshop-oriented in-person gathering. A core philosophy of the festival is to foster inclusivity and lower barriers to participation. TNOC Festival focuses on facilitating transdisciplinary dialogue, learning, small group workshops, direct arts engagement, and fostering a creative and collaborative spirit around solutions for cities that are better for nature and all people.
The 2024 theme of “Action” focuses our attention on translating knowledge from various sources to results on the ground.
