15-19Aug2013: Uncivilisation, The Dark Mountain festival

HAMPSHIRE, 15 – 19 AUGUST 2013

Three days of music, art, performance, debate, storytelling and conversations in search of new stories … welcome to Uncivilisation, The Dark Mountain festival.

This will be the last of our annual Uncivilisation festivals – read this blog for what comes next. And get your tickets while there’s time.

Uncivilisation 2013 is a gathering of people searching for answers to questions about our collective future in a rapidly-changing and depleting world. For one long weekend in August, the woods and chalk downland of the Sustainability Centre in Hampshire will be home to a festival of literature, music, art and action. It will be a place of encounters and conversations, learning and sharing, stories, ideas, music and performance. There will be campfires, wanderings in the woods, children’s activities, and workshops in everything from writing to scything.

There’s also practical information about transport and accommodation options.

A bit of background…

The Dark Mountain Project is a network of writers, artists and thinkers who have stopped believing the stories our civilisation tells itself. We see that the world is entering an age of ecological collapse, material contraction and social and political unravelling, and we want our cultural responses to reflect this reality rather than denying it.

The Project grew out of a feeling that contemporary art and literature were failing to respond honestly or adequately to the scale of our entwined ecological, economic and social crises. We believe that writing and art have a crucial role to play in coming to terms with this reality, and in questioning its foundations.

New stories are needed for darker, more uncertain times. Older ones need to be rediscovered. The Dark Mountain Project was created to help this happen.
