Shakespeare 2016: Efemérides 400 de William Shakespeare [1564–1616] | Agenda 4º Centenario: Shakespeare 400, World Shakespeare Congress, Globe to Globe, We Are Shakespeare Digital Film Festival, Shakespeare Lives & MIT Global Shakespeares

Shakespeare400 is a consortium of leading cultural, creative and educational organisations, coordinated by King’s College London, which will mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 2016. Through a connected series of public performances, programmes, exhibitions and creative activities in the capital and beyond, partners will celebrate the legacy of Shakespeare during the quatercentenary year. | @S400events

The 2016 World Shakespeare Congress –four hundred years after the playwright’s death– will celebrate Shakespeare’s memory and the global cultural legacy of his works. Uniquely, ambitiously, fittingly, this quatercentenary World Congress will be based in not just one but two locations: in Shakespeare’s birthplace, and final resting-place, Stratford-upon-Avon; and in the city where he made his name and where his genius flourished—London.

The Globe to Globe tour actually started on April 23, 2014, three days before the 450th anniversary of the Bard's birth, and will be completed for the anniversary of his death on April 23, 2016. The group of 16 people will be playing in Qatar on January 13. Still to come are Liberia, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, among many others.

We Are Shakespeare Digital Film Festival In honor of the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s legacy [1616-2016], the Shakespeare Theatre Association and Shakespeare at Notre Dame invite you to commemorate the impact his works have had on your life. Play a role in the global Legacy 400 celebrations by submitting a short performance, testimonial, or other digital artwork inspired by the world’s greatest dramatist!

Shakespeare Lives is an unprecedented global programme of events and activities celebrating William Shakespeare’s work on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of his death in 2016. It is an invitation to the world to join in the festivities by participating in a unique online collaboration and experiencing the work of Shakespeare directly on stage, through film, exhibitions and in schools. It will run throughout 2016, exploring Shakespeare as a living writer who still speaks for all people and nations.

The MIT Global Shakespeares Video & Performance Archive is a collaborative project providing online access to performances of Shakespeare from many parts of the world as well as essays and metadata by scholars and educators in the field.
