'Play Your Part' and 'Share Your Shakespeare' and support the VSO

Join us starting January 5, 2016 (Twelfth Night) by posting your favorite Shakespeare moment on Twitter, Facebook or Weibo!

Did you know that 2016 is the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death? His legacy lives on in so many ways. This year, the British Council and the GREAT Campaign are joining together to bring you 'Shakespeare Lives' a global, interactive and year-long program celebrating the work of 'The Bard'. 

From Twelfth Night (January 5, 2016), we will be using the power of Shakespeare to support work in education from our charity partner: Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO).

We believe every child deserves an education. With your support we can ensure more children get an education, train teachers and support new technologies to improve learning in classrooms across the globe with the VSO. 

Starting on January 5th, you can post a short video (30 seconds) of your favorite Shakespeare moment, quote or scene on Twitter, Facebook of Weibo with the hashtag #PlayYourPart to show your support. Be as creative as you want, and make sure you tweet at us or post your video on our Facebook wall! We'd love to see it and share it.
