Greenbelt is an incredible annual festival celebrating arts, faith and justice which takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend at Cheltenham Racecourse (although maybe I'm slightly biased.) Each year they invite applications from artists and speakers who would like to be part of the festival. Each year more men than women put in applications to be part of the speaking team, and this year they have had even fewer applications from women than usual. Greenbelt is keen to work towards gender equality across all parts of the programme, so are actively looking for more applications from women who have something to say.
You can find out how to apply on their website here, you can see who spoke at the festival last year here, and you can find details of last year's subjects here. Spread the word - if there's a woman you know who you think has got something to say point her towards the Greenbelt website. Deadline for submissions is 15 February 2012.
