Theatre In The Rough

Liverpool’s Theatre in the Rough has been awarded funding for a new digital arts festival exploring young women’s responses to the Climate Emergency. It is now seeking participants to create original work for the event.

400 Parts Per Million is an online festival of creative responses to the Climate Emergency. Participants work with leading activists and environmental scientists from around the world over a four-month period, in order to learn more about the ecological damage being done to our planet—as well as what we can do to inspire change.

They then create short works to feature at the online festival, which will coincide with the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow in November.

Participants must be female (inclusive of trans women), aged between 15 and 25 and live in the Liverpool City Region.
