WHERE OUR DREAMS MEET ACTION

The 11th Annual Tom Tom Festival’s theme is “FUTURE FORWARD.”

 

We’ll explore expansive ideas about the future, alongside the creative doers who launch businesses, spear-head initiatives, organize neighborhoods, write policy, create art, and lead organizations for the betterment of our community. We'll look at innovations in science, technology, and entrepreneurship, but also innovative approaches to how we build community.
