Reimagining the Future – A Writing for Life exploration

Weekend residential course with Charlotte Du Cann

Join Dark Mountain editor Charlotte Du Cann for this weekend course in July.

Do our words matter? Can the act of writing redirect the course of our lives? By activating our imaginations and speaking out, can we change the cultural stories and myths by which we live, individually and collectively?

This creative non-fiction weekend course is for all those looking to discover some key tools for navigating rocky times, from making meaning and broadening our collaboration skills, to laying down some tracks to restore the world and co-create a different kind of future.

During the course of the weekend we will explore how to listen to different voices (human and non-human), how to work with real life material, how to find our own ‘medicine story’, and how to sustain a writing practice in times of urgency. The weekend will include writing ‘tech share’ and exercises, myth telling and story-sharing, and combine group work around the fire, by the river and under trees and stars, with time for individual contemplation and writing.

Suitable for all writers who want to develop their craft, changemakers, artists, activists, designers and community workers. Bring your brilliance and your swimming costume!

Cost: £150, including organic vegetarian food and accommodation.
