These are precarious and unprecedented times. Our economies crumble, while beyond the chaos of markets, ecological foundations are near collapse. Little that we have taken for granted is likely to come through this century intact. Dark Mountain Project is a network of writers, artists and thinkers in search of new stories for troubled times. In an age of ecological decline and economic contraction, they seek writing, art, music and culture rooted in place, time and nature. Paul Kingsnorth, the project’s director, talks about how writing and art can respond to our global ‘age of consequences’ with honesty and integrity.
Paul Kingsnorth has published two books of political non-fiction and one collection of poetry. He has also written a lot of journalism and far too many blogs. He is co-founder of the Dark Mountain Project, a cultural and literary movement for an age of global disruption, for which he edits a series of books. Visit his website at www.paulkingsnorth.net.
