Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand
Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand (SGCNZ) is a life skills enhancing organisation which supports Shakespeare’s Globe, London and the artistic and educational strategies associated with furthering the international understanding of Shakespeare and his contemporaries in performance.
SGCNZ was founded in 1991. By the end of our 20th year in 2011, 80 000 students had been involved in our festivals and associated activities! Providing educational opportunities for people of all ages – primary, secondary, tertiary, emerging and professional theatre practitioners, teachers, corporate sector and lovers of Shakespeare – SGCNZ helps lift Shakespeare from the page to performance and other highly imaginative manifestations.
Developing skills of young people, including collaboration, co-operation, compromise, and at the same time, leadership, self-presentation, self- confidence, self-esteem, time management, project management and performance evaluation are just some of the key skills SGCNZ enhances.
