Meet the Seavers

Meet the Seavers

A potent concoction of Vaudeville drenched outsider jazz and odd time signatures wrapped around a clever lyric, one is given the impression that they are hearing something Tom Waits wrote for Sinatra and Nina Simone.

A Place For You

The Nashville Nones Convention (NaNoCon) is a one-day secular extravaganza for those of us who, when asked what religion we prefer, select “none”. This nickname Nones applies whether you’re just questioning your beliefs or you’re happily religion-free — NaNoCon is an event for you — friendly, affordable, and fun. Let’s throw a party celebrating good people like us!

The 2018 Theme:  Sex positivity, consent, and empowerment!

Our theme: the NaNo ConSensuALL

This year, we’re getting smart about consent, respect, and hell yes, more positive sex! We’re committed to sharing a fun, inclusive environment that everyone can feel comfortable to enjoy, without unwanted pressures. The #MeToo movement and the Women’s March make this all the more timely — how can we help create a positive culture of respect, empowerment, and comfort for ALL members of our community? We’re taking off the Bible Belt, consensually… because everyone knows, Nones do it better!

Three years and counting…

Last year’s event sold out with over 450 participants, and we’re growing every year… We, the non-religious “nones” are statistically the fastest growing group in the nation, and we’re building a warm, inclusive community right here in the “Bible Belt.” In 2018, let’s get connected, share great ideas, and take away more happy memories. We’re among friends…
