Black Tea Ceremony for Green Cities

Black Tea Ceremony for Green Cities
Interactive Artwork / Workshop

Patrick M. Lydon
United States


An unconventional space to dream about green cities. While serving fermented black tea under special rules of engagement, participants share their hopes and visions for more sustainable city living. We play at the border of here and there, and perhaps to wonder what even is a boarder, anyway.

NOTE: This workshop has a maximum of 5 participants each day, so please sign up for a spot at the FRIEK space in the auditorium lobby.
