Weʼre raising £1,000 to support SSF MW... the fifth Shakespeare Schools Festival in Malawi
- Oxford, Malawi
Don't have time to donate right now?
The Shakespeare Schools Festival (SSF MW) was started in Malawi in 2017. (This is independent of Festivals in other countries.) Last year (2020) some two hundred and thirty young people and their teachers 'gathered' online from eight schools (inc. two deaf) and two youth groups to perform shortened versions of ten plays and more sonnets. They included boys and girls, ten year olds and twenty year olds, smart private academies and impoverished Government schools. Click HERE to watch their achievement! (Kind friends in Malawi, South Africa and the United Kingdom helped to make it happen.) In 2021 / 2022 we are attempting a 'hybrid' Festival: Part I (4 December 2021) online, Part II (January - June 2022) face-to-face (Covid allowing). Updates on the Festival are available HERE. Thus far, ten schools (inc. one deaf) and two youth groups are involved. Funds raised will support the Festival. Many thanks and Zikomo kwambili for your generosity!

I look forward especially to the performances of the deaf schools at the 4th Malawi Schools Shakespeare Festival.
