Opportunity: Climate science radio drama writing for 16-25-year-olds

We’re commissioning young creatives to write short audio pieces responding to the climate crisis

IGNITE is a writing development programme for 16-25-year-old creatives, in partnership with RADA and funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

We’ll be commissioning six people (or teams of up to 3) to create short radio pieces inspired by the climate crisis over the course of a series of weekend workshops. If selected you’ll take part in zoom workshops with industry mentors, from playwrights and directors to climate activists and scientists. Your plays will then be performed and recorded as podcasts. Writers will receive a fee of £350 for the project.

This opportunity is open to writers, scientists, spoken word artists, comedians, and anyone else who’s interested in applying! Workshops will all take place over zoom, so is open to applicants from anywhere in the UK.

Application deadline is August 14th at 5pm.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
