Noon’s twelfth issue imagines New Communities for a brave new world. We thought: Individualism; the freedom that comes from opting out; disrupting hierarchies; re-appropriating subcultures; cultural displacement; new ways of working; hope through locality; embracing the idea of JUST ENOUGH. We got: COVID-19; an uncertain universe; shrinking schedules; novel habits; safe spaces established, lost and found again; inter- and intra-personal relationships; ancestral lands. Now, the only truism is that there is only the present. Future unknown. Coordinates lost. The possibility of a new landscape.
