An Interview with Dougald Hine of Uncivilisation: The Dark Mountain Festival

UNCIVILISATION: The Dark Mountain Festival took place in Llangollen in late May 2010. We wish we'd made it along ourselves but instead we managed to have a little post-festival catch up with organiser and co-founder Dougald Hine.

In May, Dougald Hine, co-founder of new literary movement The Dark Mountain Project organised Uncivilisation in Llangollen, Denbighshire. The three day festival of music, writing, thinking and doing was an astounding success, challenging the preconceived notions that our current way of living can be made 'sustainable'. I caught up with him for a post-festival chat...

How are you feeling now the festival is over?
I'm exhausted and still piecing together what exactly happened, but it feels like it was something big and worthwhile.

Were you pleased with the turnout?
We had 400 people over the weekend, which was as many as the site could handle - and a real mixture of those who already felt deeply connected to Dark Mountain, those who were sceptical but wanting to engage, and those who were just curious to find out more.
