How do we make sense of our lives in a time of disruption and contraction? Where are the stories - old or new - that help us reground ourselves? Faced with the loss of much we took for granted, where are the practical projects that offer hope and meaning for the times ahead?
This year’s Dark Mountain festival will be a gathering of people searching for answers to these questions. For one weekend this August, a temporary village will spring up in the Hampshire countryside.
Drawing on the strengths of last year’s event in Llangollen, it will be a place of encounters and conversations, learning and sharing, stories, ideas, music and performance. There will also be campfires, wanderings in the woods, children’s activities, and workshops in everything from writing to scything.
