What are the 'Shakespeare Talks'?

Education UK is planning a series of panel discussions in countries around the world, exploring Shakespeare's relevance to performance and academia.

Local education and cultural experts, from actors to world leading professors, will describe how Shakespeare has influenced their work to a live audience.

In addition, a video and podcast series to accompany the talks will feature academics and artists exploring Shakespeare’s impact in the worlds of performance, science, literature, English language, and society.

How can I get involved?

Talks will be taking place in different countries throughout 2016, which are available for students and members of the public to attend. 

Films and podcasts will be available to download from January 2016 onwards, and will be screened at selected British Council events, education exhibitions and workshops.

Find details on attending live and downloading the discussions by visiting the Education UK website.

There will be plenty of opportunities to join the global conversation during the talk, engaging with the Education UK and British Council social media channels using #ShakespeareLives.
