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 2019/2020, contact us and let us know what program you’re interested in. Successful applicants will be granted subsidies of 25% – 100% towards performances, workshops and masterclass visits.

If you are part of a network of schools, apply together and enhance your subsidy value.

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