UNCIVILISATION: The Dark Mountain Network

A space for conversations in a time of global disruption


The Dark Mountain Project began as a manifesto and has branched into a host of further conversations - not least on the Dark Mountain website, in the pages of our books, and at our annual Uncivilisation festivals.

This site  is an adjunct to the main Dark Mountain site. It exists to allow people interested in Dark Mountain's work to get in touch with each other. 

This site is not moderated or overseen by the Dark Mountain team, and we're not responsible for its content - though if we are alerted to anything illegal, nasty or provocative we will act on it. 

If you have any problems, or you want to contact the Dark Mountain Project's curators, please  email info@dark-mountain.net.

and take a walk outside…


Where to my awestruck wonder,

I beheld the pink, peach, pastel blush

of morning’s light

gently transcending

the sparking clear darkness

of the star canopy

in the clear, dark moonless sky.


The breathtaking pastels

reflected, refracted…


A Beginning

Below is a journal entry I wrote back in April.  I think it explains why I feel at home as a Mountaineer.

8 April 2015

I hear words which are not yet words.  They are language as if heard through a wall - unintelligible but expressive.  Their music sounds like something I should understand if only they were articulated in my presence.

He who speaks tells a story, utters a mystery, offers an adventure…
