“The end of the world as we know it is not the end of the world full stop,” says Dougald Hine, named by The Guardian as one of Britain’s fifty new radicals. speaking via Skype from Sweden.

Dark Mountain looks squarely at the profound disruption we are all experiencing and offers a creative space, somewhere between apocalypse and false hope, in which people can engage in a conversation about a future life worth living, freed from wishful thinking that the world will once again be as it was.
