Anti-Racist Shakespeare

Anti-Racist Shakespeare is a series of free webinars that brings together scholars and artists of colour from a wide variety of backgrounds to examine Shakespeare’s plays through the lens of race and social justice.

We encourage everyone – audience members, theatre professionals, students, teachers and scholars – to add their critical voice by attending and asking questions.

Webinars are part of our Winter 2022/23 and Summer 2023 seasons.
