Get Involved

Answers to your questions about becoming involved with the Dark Mountain Project.

Dark Mountain is run by a small team, supported by a network of people who have helped create and maintain this cultural project over the last ten years — as readers, subscribers, contributors and event participants. There are several ways you can be involved in what we do:


Are you inspired by what we’re doing  and would like to contribute? The most direct form of support you can give us is to subscribe to the Dark Mountain books. Or you can donate directly to the project. 

Another great way is to help us spread the word by talking to people about the project, whether through online networks or face to face.

Do you want to meet others who are engaging in similar ideas? You can do this in two ways: either by coming to one of our Events, or through our new Find the Others hub for local meet-ups organised by Dark Mountain readers.

Twice a year we host launches for our spring and autumn journals which take place around the UK, as well as one off-events, workshops and teaching courses. You can find all about these meetings in our  Gathering Places section.

We send out announcements about events through our mailing list. You can also keep in touch online through our Facebook page.

Are you’re a writer or artist or someone with a great story to share? We are always looking for new work that might find a home in our books and in our weekly online edition. You can read all about how to submit text and artwork in our Write for Us section.

If you have any further questions we are happy to hear from you. Do get in touch via our Contact page.
