Borrowed Time is our next major initiative — You may be new to the project: if so, welcome!

If you discovered Borrowed Time prior to its postponement, you’ll recall that we promised to return for another round. Well, here we are: our planned 2020 gathering having been kicked into the long grass by the pandemic, Borrowed Time will now unfold as a year-long series of events concluding with a three-day summit re-scheduled for 1st to 3rd November 2021 ––  to begin on the Day of the Dead.

We have now announced our call for participation with a submission deadline of Sunday, December 13 at 23.00 GMT. If you previously sent us a proposal, please read this.

This time around in addition to working with academic partner Falmouth University we’re delighted to be walking in step with our friends at the Dark Mountain Project, who have a parallel call out for a dedicated ‘Requiem’ April 2021 issue: check that out, pass it on, send them your work. Dark Mountain has long been ahead of the curve in this territory, bringing together a diversity of voices who have enlarged our thinking and stirred our imagination of what it means to live in a time of ecological and cultural unravelling. We’re delighted to be teaming up with them on this, our second call for submissions.
