William Shakespeare will be bringing together young people for a special conference at Canterbury Cathedral.
The influence of the bard in the 400th year since his death will be very much in focus on 8 July when those aged between 16 and 18 will be posed the question What did Shakespeare do for me?
The Young Futures Conference is organised by the Cathedral as part of the Shakespeare400: Chapter and Verse commemoration and inspirational speakers from industry, education and the arts have been invited to take part. These include Dan Richards, Creative Director from the animation production company A+C and Dom Bridges, entrepreneur and seaweed and herb apothecary.
There will be a drama workshop with Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre representatives; a behind the scenes tour of the Cathedral and an exploration of Shakespeare’s folios and forgeries.
The day is aimed at those studying drama, English, visual arts, theatre studies, film making, history, conservation and those aiming to go straight into the workplace and creative industries.
