Strike A Light are seeking an experienced director/writer/theatre-maker to collaborate with an amazing group of young climate activists from Gloucester, to create a new piece of work. We would like the piece to preview in October underneath Gaia in Gloucester.

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.

Fee: £8,000 (based on the project proposal we 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).

How to apply


Please send no more than 2 x pages of A4 (or a video) with information about a piece of work you have made that you feel has a similar approach, and how you might approach this project. Please also include a CV or link to a bio or similar online.


For any questions about the project or to email your application contact info@strikealightfestival.org.uk

Due to the changing nature of all of our working patterns at the moment we are flexible as to how this work is made and open to new ideas. SAL are firmly committed to the young climate activists in Gloucester and their strong will to change legislations and ultimately help save the planet. They fear for their future and we believe we should listen to them.

Closing date: Monday 13 July 9am
