In 2016, we celebrated the 400th anniversary of the legacy of William Shakespeare. Commemorating this important date, the Fundación Shakespeare Argentina (FSA) facilitated celebrations of Shakespeare all throughout the country, and invited cultural institutions, educational establishments, libraries, teachers, professors, students, and Shakespeare enthusiasts to add to and celebrate Shakespeare’s legacy with our institution.
These aforementioned events with the FSA were publicized on our website, social media pages, and through our partner organizations to share a part of the great universal homage that took place all over the world in 2016.
Below, we include the letter of the President of the Shakespeare Theater Association (STA) asking for the declaration of April 23 as the International Day of Shakespeare, in which she mentioned our FSA. We are very proud and thankful to be included among the other prestigious institutions in this important initiative.
FSA’s Shakespeare 400 Campaign
We invited to explore the incredible and important, educational, and free resources on our website (texts, articles, videos, photos, and links) in order to find inspiration to celebrate Shakespeare together.
We remembered the marvelous quote by Jorge Luis Borges:
“All men who repeat a line from Shakespeare, are William Shakespeare”
We made some suggestions:
Read a poem, recite a sonnet or a monologue, or perform a scene.
You could film a video of the activity and share your homage!
Below, we are sharing the video of the incredibly talented Egyptian actress and writer, Samira Kirollos.
