Liverpool’s Theatre in the Rough has announced an open callout for short works for a new digital arts festival exploring women’s experience of the Climate Crisis.
400 Parts Per Million is an ecological arts festival taking place in February 2022, coinciding with the UN International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
The theatre is producing a series of microworks that will form part of the festival programme. These will be film or audio, for one performer, be up to five minutes long, and have an eco-conscious theme.
For a chance to take part, pitch your idea in no more than 100 words. We’ll choose the most inspirational ones, and professionally produce them.
Sarah Van Parys, co-Director of Theatre in the Rough, said, “Women are under-represented in both STEM and the arts. Yet, globally, they are the most likely to be affected by climate change. This project aims to empower young women to be the artistic and ecological leaders we need.”
Participants must be female (inclusive of trans women), aged between 15 and 25, and have an address in the Liverpool City Region. No experience is necessary. More information can be found by going to www.400.earth . The deadline for applications is Wednesday 15 December 2021.
