Kirk Williams talks Impact Overland
An inspiring talk from overland adventure photographer Kirk Williams.
To celebrate a year since the first ever Armchair Adventure Festival, we're releasing some of our favourite talks, interviews and panel discussions from the Winter 2020 Festival. This content was previously only available for free when it was live but we thought since we won't be going 'live in your living rooms' for a crazy amount of time this weekend, we should at least provide you with a weekend full of existing Armchair Adventure content!
We hope you enjoy this super inspiring talk from Kirk.
Kirk’s a C6 quadriplegic adventure photographer who loves to travel. Kirk broke his neck in 2009 mountain biking but has refused to sit still. His latest project ‘Impact Overland’ has seen him raise over $20,000 for the Walkabout Foundation! After realising the freedom he could achieve through overlanding in a camper van, Kirk conjured the idea to drive from Santiago, Chile to Patagonia before working his way back north to Colombia. Unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic put an end to his trip and we caught up with Kirk when he was back in the States.
Kirk told us all about his adventures in this belter of a talk at the Winter Festival. We hope you enjoy:
