Artist In Residence

Professional artists in schools providing tailored content and long-form engagement

Ready for your next step with Shakespeare? Why not make it a whole-school experience?

Designed to impact the entire school from students to teachers, an Artist in Residence will transform attitudes with an intensive program of active learning through Shakespeare.

Residencies address a range of student needs including increasing literacy levels, self-confidence, self-expression, critical and creative thinking, public speaking and communication skills.

Over one or two weeks, Bell Shakespeare teaching artists will teach student workshops, run teacher Professional Learning sessions, and deliver on outcomes we set with you in advance. Content will be designed in consultation with us, and you can choose from one play to a suite of plays for different year levels.

The students who participated in the program were able to transfer their confidence into their classroom. They developed improved public speaking skills and displayed improvements in their inferential comprehension. The kids enjoyed it so much. It has been one of the best additional activities I have seen in a school. It was brilliant!
