About Graham Clarke, Founder & Festival Director.
Known to have once lived in a tent for 10 months, Graham is also a self-confessed closet productivity geek.
Graham founded the Why Not? Adventure Film Festival in 2012 for one simple reason, to inspire people to get outside more, explore and undertake their own adventures. No matter how small.
Graham studied Outdoor Education, Business Studies and Adventure Management in Ireland and the USA and holds an MSc. in Sustainable Development. He has been involved in the outdoors since age five, thanks to being the son of an avid mountaineer, Robert Clarke. Graham holds qualifications for training in kayaking, canoeing, surf kayaking, surfing, climbing, mountain skills, sailing, windsurfing, power boating, orienteering and archery.
Graham has travelled to 36 countries so far, mostly trekking, climbing, or kayaking. Although the mountains were what held his fascination as a young boy he was introduced to white-water kayaking at 19 years and quickly fell in love with it. Kayaking has taken Graham through Europe and to Norway, the West Coast of Canada, East and West Coast US, Uganda, Nepal and New Zealand. During a one year stint travelling with his wife in 2015 Graham re-discovered his affinity for the mountains and wilderness.
