The project will explore their relationship to the climate, their fears for the impending crisis and their place in the world as young activists.The journey to making this would connect with other young activists from across the globe, linking up and sharing fears, concerns and activism, as well as curating a collective voice.
They want to explore lots of questions:
- Can we create something with a live audience which still responds to social distancing guidelines?
- Can we integrate in person and digital performance and audiences?
- Can we create a format which can be shared or replicated by other groups of young people?
What they are looking for
A creative or company who:
- is good at and likes working with young people
- makes extraordinary work
- understands digital stuff and is excited about the potential of it
- is an activist and has a deep understanding of the issues that the work is about
- wants to change the world through performance
- can lift up under-represented voices in the climate debate
- can work with them during these times and support an amazing group of young people to make a life-changing piece of theatre that will help them feel better about their future.
Fee: £8,000 (based on the project proposal they will work with the successful applicant to develop a role description to clarify what is expected within this fee. Due to the nature of the project the role will combine developing, writing and directing).

Closing date: Monday 13 July 9am
They welcome applications from individuals from communities who are under-represented both in the arts and in climate conversations, particularly Black, Asian and minority ethnic/POC creatives.
