Nutopia originated as a conceptual country founded by John Lennon and Yoko Ono in New York on April Fool’s Day 1973: “Citizenship of the country can be obtained by declaration of your awareness of NUTOPIA. NUTOPIA has no land, no boundaries, no passports, only people. NUTOPIA has no laws other than cosmic. All people of NUTOPIA are ambassadors of the country”. The flag of Nutopia is white and it’s national anthem is four seconds silence. The idea of a place with no orders and no boundaries has never been more relevant. In times of turmoil, people naturally start thinking about different, better alternatives.
Journey To Nutopia is part of an emerging network springing up in the UK and beyond in the past few years. We’re inspired by Daisy Campbell’s Cosmic Trigger project (as seen at The Cockpit in 2017), which in turn inspired other events like Greg Wilson’s Super Weird Happenings and Sheffield’s excellent Festival 23. Alan Moore’s call for the re-emergence of local Arts Labs is another key inspiration, and others such as Pete Lawrence’s Campfire Sessions are also expanding the conversation. Organised, localised networks are the greatest agents of change – we are getting organised. Nutopia can be anywhere.
