The Shakespeare Schools Festival was launched in 2010, to strengthen the link between the Arts and Education, at its core, the festival is an educational program, aimed at improving language and social skills through the Performing Arts. We aim to unite children from diverse backgrounds in Southern Africa and empower them to transform their lives, using the unique power of theatre and the works of Shakespeare as the vehicle. Since its inception, the festival has become Africa’s largest Shakespeare youth drama program and has worked with over 490 schools, 9000 youth, 670 teachers across the Western Cape, Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Eastern Cape.
