Shakespeare Art Trail
This event has now passed
To mark the 25th anniversary of Shakespeare’s Globe, Better Bankside has created an immersive Shakespeare Art Trail to bring the Great Bard’s voice back to Southwark, one of his favourite haunts.
The trail illustrates the ways in which Shakespeare’s 400 year old words continue to resonate, excite and inspire the artists and creative practitioners of today with works of photography and illustration, textile and graphic design, sound and light based projections alongside street art and installations by students of Borough Academy.
Bankside has collaborated with a myriad of artists, Shakespeare’s Globe, Borough Academy, Jack Arts, Art Academy London, Bankside Gallery and a number of local businesses to create the self-guided trail. The trail is free of charge and will be running until late September starting and ending at Shakespeare’s Globe. Scroll down for more information on the artists involved.
As in the nature of art in the public realm, there are times when work may need to be moved or removed. Updates will be logged on this page.
Please note the Tomboy Bill and Richa Vora art pieces are currently unavailable (Oct 2022)
