Sharing Shakespeare

Sharing Shakespeare

John Bell founded Bell Shakespeare with the mission of making Shakespeare’s plays accessible to all Australians, regardless of age, income or geographic location.

Sharing Shakespeare provides subsidies to schools challenged by financial, socioeconomic and geographic barriers, for a range of our in-school programs.

If you would like to be considered for a subsidy in 2020, complete our online form below and let us know what programs you’re interested in. Successful applicants will be granted subsidies of 25% – 100% towards performances, workshops and masterclass visits.

With thanks to our generous donors who make Sharing Shakespeare possible.

Our Sharing Shakespeare programs are only made possible thanks to the generous support of our donors. It is critical for Bell Shakespeare to be able to report on the impact of these programs for our donors, and therefore we ask all recipients to provide feedback about their experiences. If we are able to provide you with a free or subsidised experience as part of the Sharing Shakespeare program, do you agree to provide feedback?
