Critical Camp # 4 – 'A Hunter’s Gathering' with Paul Chaney, Dominic Bailey and John Nixon. Workshop, talks, fireside meal and optional overnight camping with breakfast Sunday morning.


Ecological thinking increasingly denounces the expansion of human agriculture on an industrial scale, and its effects on our fellow creatures. Many cultures have found it possible to live off the land in a way that leaves space for the non-human, but is this a possibility today considering the exponential growth of human populations? How do our methods of food production reflect our relationship to the rest of the animal kingdom, and how does the recently emerged field of Dark Ecology help us negotiate the population problematic?

Investigating food production, re-wilding, and the relation between agriculture and ecology, in practices from foraging to hunting and trapping, this Critical Camp takes an empathetic but unsentimental look at the relation between the human and its prey.

Speakers: Dominic Bailey – Performance chef specialising in wild cooking and former manager of the Duke of Cambridge Organic Pub, London, and the Gurnards Head, Cornwall. Paul Chaney – Artist and horticulturalist. John Nixon – Professional hunter.
