Venus - Globe Hangings

HISTORY

Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand is a life skills enhancing organisation using Shakespeare as a tool. It works with primary, secondary and tertiary students, actors, directors, teachers, the corporate sector and devotees of Shakespeare. SGCNZ was founded in 1991 as a result of New Zealand’s project which involved 500 embroiderers and textile artists nationwide, from eight to 80 years old, to create a gift of four hangings for Shakespeare’s Globe, London. SGCNZ continues to work closely with Shakespeare’s Globe and is currently helping to promote the Globe’s 2011 live-filmed performances in cinemas throughout NZ.
