#ShareYourShakespeare

Share Your Shakespeare

#ShareYourShakespeare is a virtual celebration in which the Royal Shakespeare Company are inviting everyone to share their love of Shakespeare in whatever way they choose. Whether performing a speech, baking a cake, painting a picture, serenading a neighbour over the garden fence or teaching their dog to bark Macbeth, on Shakespeare’s birthday, Thursday 23 April, #ShareYourShakespeare aims to bring together RSC alumni, audiences, partners, schools and its acting company in a virtual celebration of shared creativity, community spirit, collective resilience and the enduring power of storytelling.

Manchester's Contact have been thinking about how the Five Ways to Wellbeing could help us to look after ourselves right now. With this project, they are focusing on one of the Five Ways that often gets overlooked: Take Notice. It’s been shown that being aware of what is taking place in the present directly enhances your wellbeing. For seven weeks, seven freelance artists will each suggest seven creative ideas to help you Take Notice – a different idea every day.
