Since the very first moment, the manifesto of Terraforma has demonstrated that new dimensions can be terraformed; the creation of that atmosphere is intrinsically linked to a moment of gathering, presence, sharing and peaceful coexistence. In the past few weeks we have carefully evaluated the current situation and imagined all possible scenarios according to the dimension of the festival as a place to be safe and free to express ourselves. In order to ensure everyone’s health and the feasibility to participate, Terraforma has decided to postpone the festival to next year. Terraforma 2021 will take place at Villa Arconati-FAR from the 2nd to 4th July 2021.
Sustainability has always been at the core of Terraforma’s values. The process of regenerating the territory hosting the festival and focusing on more sustainable ways to
interact with the whole planet is an ongoing task and does not stop in this moment of crisis.
Following the restoration of Villa Arconati’s Labyrinth, Terraforma, launches a biennial
project to reforest the land hosting the campsite in collaboration with Fondazione Augusto Rancilio and supported by Borotalco and Fondazione Comunitaria Nord Milano. Around 100 trees, such as lime, ash and oak will be planted in the camping area of Terraforma.
Conceived by the Space Caviar research and design studio, the project is inspired by the
schemes of the architect Cesare Leonardi, author of the volume “The Architecture of Trees” in which he examines the configurations of the trees in relation to their shadow. Taking inspiration from the iconic performance of the artist Joseph Beuys, thanks to which seven thousand oaks were planted in 1982 in Kassel in Germany. The planting intervention, in addition to having a positive impact for the territory, will be part of a larger project to neutralize CO2 emissions from future editions of the festival.
According to the decision of postponing the festival, all purchased tickets will be valid for
Terraforma 2021. In the following weeks information will be shared by email to icketholders.
As you might imagine, in a moment in which all components of society are affected, the
cultural industry is struggling more than ever, therefore we are grateful for your understanding and patience. New dimensions can be terraformed only through joint forces and intentions. The lymph of Terraforma is our community. And only through our joint forces and intentions the community be kept alive. We are looking forward to seeing you all again at Terraforma 2021, it will be a time of rebirth and reconnection. Until then Terraforma will keep on spreading its message.
So please stay tuned and be safe.
