TNOC Festival, a virtual event taking place from 22-26 February 2021, spans 5 days with programming across all regional time zones, providing multiple languages, and offering local and global scales, pretending to outreach a much broader perspective and participation than any one physical meeting in any one city could ever have achieved.
