The Muse Project
A programme to inspire wild creative power, June to October 2018
“Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.”
– John Updike
We are very glad to announce The Muse Project – a programme for anyone whose creative work in any field would be reawakened or enlivened by contact with the living Earth and its stories. Over the course of two week-long gatherings in wild places, along with online ‘virtual firepits’ and a supported personal project, we will explore an ancient question that, today, is more relevant and urgent than ever: is the Earth speaking to us? And, if so, what is she asking us to do?
What to Expect
The Muse Project is the third programme in our continued collaboration with author and storyteller, Paul Kingsnorth. For 2018, our intention is to work with nature to find the powerful creativity that comes from tapping into both our inner and outer wildness. Across the programme we will weave conversations, guided teaching sessions, time spent outside and two 24-hour solo expeditions into extraordinary places. On the journey with you will be writers, artists, musicians and wilderness guides, who will support each participant as they develop a meaningful creative project.
If you like the sound of The Muse Project, please email us to find out more. We will be sharing updates in coming weeks and opening applications from mid-December.
