Guests have an open discussion on the topic of greening cities with a twist: the engagement will follow the social rules of tea drinking, found commonly in East Asia. Chinese black tea will be served in a traditional (casual) manner. The event is facilitated daily by TNOC’s Arts Editor, an American ecological artist who lives in Japan.

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.
