What is Shakespeare Lives?
Shakespeare Lives is a global programme of events and activities celebrating the world's most popular playwright's work on the 400th anniversary of his death in 2016. The programme will include a host of events, including innovative theatre and dance performances, film screenings, globally sourced art exhibitions and educational resources for English language learners.
How can I get involved?
A major highlight will be a mass participation project inviting people worldwide to respond creatively to scenes from Shakespeare’s plays, culminating in a crowd-sourced digital reimagining of Shakespeare’s works. Plenty of other opportunities to get involved in Shakespeare Lives events and workshops can be found by visiting the Shakespeare Lives website. To get involved in the conversation follow #ShakespeareLives on Twitter.
