Mountain Journal Shorts are short films based on people with a love of the outdoors. OSS Director and artist Kari Furre features in the latest film, talking about her love of long distance swimming
Kari Furre is a Devon based artist and director at the Outdoor Swimming Society, there in the Lake District when the idea was born in 2005. Kari was also one of the early gold Duke of Edinburgh Award girls, back when women did not do things like this on an equal footing with the boys. In May 2016 Kari swam the 10.5 mile Lake Windermere in celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the DofE and continues to be inspired by her natural surroundings, particularly when it comes to water!
