What is Shakespeare Lives?
Shakespeare Lives is a global programme of events and activities celebrating Shakespeare’s life on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of his death in 2016.
The British Council and the GREAT Britain campaign are working with a host of British theatres, museums, educators and artists on brand new productions of Shakespeare’s plays, film adaptations, public readings and educational resources for schools and English language learners of all ages in the UK and around the world.
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.
