Shakespeare, Inclusion and Working-Class Communities
Birmingham’s Shakespeare Library holds the only First Folio in the world acquired for comprehensive (including working-class) education, and its founders expressly intended the Library to open high culture up for all the people of the city. ‘Everything to Everybody’ seeks to recover this inspiring history. It also seeks to find new ways to remake Shakespeare with people and communities across Birmingham who might not otherwise think that Shakespeare and traditional British culture belong to them.
