Much Ado About Portsmouth

Activity: Other


This project involved planning a festival marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, and co-ordinating the activities and events that built up to it.
As Project Lead, my activities included: running workshops to encourage participants; spearheading drives for sponsorship; negotiating with the University of Portsmouth and Portsmouth City Council over the use of spaces and facilities; facilitating collaborations between students, staff and local groups; acting as the central point of contact for all festival events; providing resources for school projects on Shakespeare's sonnets; running competitions (including a competition for the festival logo); overseeing the design of the website (by a University of Portsmouth student); creating client briefs for and overseeing credit-bearing student projects.
