Writing Shakespeare with Cambian Oaks

As part of our Othello Unbound project we are working with resident from the Cambian Oaks psychiatric rehabilitation hospital in Barnsley.

Participants have been very enthusiastic and have created music, writing and Artwork inspired by life and by Othello! However, our most recent workshop has focused on Christmas with residents creating writing and images inspired by the festive season.

Past workshops have included participants writing on windows and glass surfaces, designing their own album covers out of old magazines, and creating personal ‘Zines, and collaborative writing. Others messed around with technology making dance music and animations!

These workshops are part of the Othello Unbound Project which encourages the creative exploration of Shakespeare’s Othello.  The project is supported by Sheffield Hallam University and funded by Arts Council England.
