Tell us a bit about yourself. (You don't have to share anything you don't want to, but please write something here, so we know you're not a spam robot.)
I am not a spam robot, nor a capitalist automaton, or wage slave. I'm a writer, artist, healing arts practitioner, and involved in co-developing and tending a variety of different projects including a massage therapist collective, community weed walks and herbal teaching/learning gardens, a radio show, and collaborative art and writing projects. In all of these, as well as in my everyday life involving connecting with food, shelter, love, pleasure, learning and other basics, I'm interested in practical ways to disentangle from dominant culture economics and many other oppressions at work these days. I'm an enthusiastic barterer, forager, mutual aid-er, skillsharer. I'm trying to parse out a mindful and sustainable active participation in a collapse that makes the best of the situation as a potential for ultimately healthy transformation, without lapsing into delusions either optimistic or pessimistic.
What drew you to the Dark Mountain Project?
I heard about this project via an article about the Uncivilization Festival. in the Independent and was excited to learn more about what sounds like rhizomatous methodologies being applied in a fecund moment.
