Zine Artist Call Out

Strike A Light are seeking an artist to create a ZINE sharing the story of the making of and impact of our new show I stand for what I stand on.

🔥 Create a Zine
🔥 £1500 set fee
🔥 Immediate start

I stand for what I stand on is a live show performed by four young climate activists from Gloucester and a global digital cast. It is touring nationally in October/ November 2021. The show is performed directly to each audience member through headphones with original sound and digital design. Drawing on autobiographical experiences, a love of Harry Styles and Abba, an extraordinary understanding of the climate crisis and using cardboard protest signs,

I stand for what I stand on shares the young international cast’s thoughts and fears about the impending climate crisis and explores the reality of being a teenager and growing up in the shadow of the climate emergency.

Why a zine?

At Strike a Light we are thinking about how we evaluate our work and want to think about how we embed artists in that process. We want to have something that we can share with others that charts the process and tells the story of a project from an artist’s perspective.

What are we looking for?

An experienced zine maker, who can work independently and ideally has some knowledge of the climate emergency and why young people are rising up and speaking out.

We would like someone to attend some rehearsals as an onlooker, attend the show, speak to the cast, speak to some audience members and create a zine that we can share with funders, arts organisations and the public that tells the story of how this show was made and what impact it has had.

When is this happening?

We are looking for someone to make an immediate start! Rehearsals are taking place 6, 7, 8 October with the tour taking place throughout October (You will need to attend some of the rehearsals and one performance on the tour).

We have a set fee of £1500 for this role.

How do I apply?

Please send examples of your work to Sarah Blowers at hello@strikealightfestival.org.uk by Wednesday 29 September.

If you’ve got any questions please get in touch.
