Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand is a life skills enhancing organisation through Shakespeare. It has at its core, education for all ages, especially fostering young people to maximise their potential. Through SGCNZ's annual University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festivals young people gain skills in leadership -through having the option of directing their own 5 or 15 minute scenes, teamwork, self -confidence and self-presentation, collaboration, close reading literary works, literacy, entrepreneurship, creativity, innovation and much more. For some selected students, these Festivals lead to National Shakespeare Schools Production week-long intensive and for 24 each year, the chance to be chosen for SGCNZ Young Shakespeare to train and perform at The Globe, London.
Biennially The Globe holds a programme, Shakespeare's Globe International Actor Fellowship, for about 20 mid-career actors from around the world, including 2 chosen by SGCNZ, which assists them with their fundraising. Other programmes at the Globe developed with them by SGCNZ included the biennial SGCNZ Teachers Go Global and SGCNZ Emerging Practitioner Programme.
SGCNZ also has a programme for primary school students, Primarily Playing with Shakespeare, in which the very young perform scenes with some paraphrasing, making it accessible and enjoyable for them.
A range of other events and activities ensure that SGCNZ provides something for everyone each year and also responds to requests for performers, performance items, mentoring and training.
