Kelkan is the Platinum Sponsor for Shakespeare Lives (Kurdistan)

Kelkan is the Platinum sponsor for Shakespeare Lives – Kurdistan. On the 400th anniversary of his death in 2016, the British Council in Partnership with Gatherton Arts, established an unprecedented global program of events and activities celebrating the work of the playwright, poet and actor William Shakespeare.

The British Council is initiating the Shakespeare Lives Program in almost every country around the world, from Spain to Taiwan, New Zealand to Malaysia and from Poland to Mexico.

According to Gatherton Arts, “Shakespeare Lives–Iraq will present Shakespeare in its many forms, from theatre to poetry, film and debate, whilst also using his work as a mirror to explore the traditions and heritage of Iraq and in particular the Kurdistan region.”

On Sunday, February 14th, 2016, Kelkan’s representatives attended the official media launch for Shakespeare Lives in Erbil. The event was officially launched by David Pardoe, Director of the British Council – Kurdistan, and Angus McKee, UK Consul General to the Kurdistan Region and Northern Iraq.
