The Dark Mountain Gathering

September 2nd-4th 2016

Welcome to Base Camp at Embercombe 2016

The Dark Mountain Project is setting up BASE CAMP at Embercombe in Devon on the weekend of September 2nd-4th 2016.

It's the first large gathering to be held by Dark Mountain for three years and will be a great opportunity to explore the issues the project has raised, to share ideas with real people in a real place, to sit round a hearth and hear stories from the other side of the fire.

We are thrilled to be hosted by Embercombe, on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, England - a extraordinary place, set amidst fifty acres of permaculture woodland, fields and gardens, with a variety of eco buildings, yurts and a lake for swimming.

The programme for the event will include speakers and performers who are producing some of the most interesting and creative responses to this era of converging crises. Just as important, throughout the weekend, there will be a chance for everyone who attends to actively contribute.

BASE CAMP aspires to a rich mix of talks, workshops and performance, and to the kind of alchemy that can happen when you honour the spaces that open in-between. It's a chance to replenish, to take a fresh look at the maps and to plan new routes and adventures. In keeping with our desire for an intimate participative event, we've limited numbers to 150.

Tickets are now SOLD OUT. But if you'd like to be kept up to date, do follow our blog for the latest news, programme details, or join the Dark Mountain mailing list for other events:

Hope to see you in September!
