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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
