Dark Mountain Project Night—with Neale Inglenook and Robin Robinson

The Dark Mountain Project was started in 2009 in the UK as a literary journal and soon became a movement.
“In 2009, two English writers published a manifesto. Out of that manifesto grew a cultural movement: a rooted and branching network of creative activity, centred on the Dark Mountain journal…Together, we are walking away from the stories that our societies like to tell themselves, the stories that prevent us seeing clearly the extent of the ecological, social and cultural unravelling that is now underway. We are making art that doesn’t take the centrality of humans for granted.”
In previous meetings, we discussed the origins and activities of the Dark Mountain Project. Tonight, we will share a brief description of the project and get an update from Editor Neale Inglenook on what’s going on now with their literary and art activities. We’ll hear poetry and writings from the Journal and lead a discussion on ways to participate by creating Dark Mountain themed gatherings.
