What kind of stories will your support help us publish in 2022?
All our stories - articles, interviews, photography, films, lists and all - show how adventure intersects with the vital social and environmental issues of our day. Beyond this, our stories aim to amplify lesser heard voices and perspectives. As was the case in 2021, each of our 2022 Editions will approach adventure through a specific theme.
Emergence (spring - 20th March)
To emerge is to become visible. Whether through awakening, growth or a decision to step into the light, to emerge is to be seen. Emergence can echo from the past, define the present or exist only as a possible future. Emergence is change, and it can bring hope or fear. Our spring Edition will explore the process of becoming visible, in its many forms, where adventure and social change meet.
Abundance (summer - 21st June)
Driving change means seeing possibilities as well as problems. As well as critiquing outdoor culture, we must celebrate the good in it. Abundance can be fleeting, after all - especially if not nurtured. But abundance also creates its own problems, like the blind spots, complacency and denial that often fester in its wake. Our summer Edition will consider the implications of having plenty.
Stewardship (autumn - 22nd September)
Autumn turns the natural world from abundance to darkness. For humans this traditionally means the time of harvest: of giving thanks, taking stock and ritualising our role as stewards of the land. But what does our stewardship, both of the land and of the outdoor community, look like today? This is the question at the heart of our autumn Edition.
Darkness (winter - 21st December)
Dark places are places of fear and foreboding, so the story goes. But they are places of dreams as well as nightmares. They are also places less explored, which makes them revealing. Our winter Edition will step into the darkness of the adventure world. Our only expectation is that we’ll be surprised.
