Yesterday 13 children from Monteagle Primary school attending the Inspire Festival at Eastbury Community School. Their theme was a creative response to Merchant of Venice a play by William Shakespeare.
Children and young people from Eastbury, Monteagle, Northbury, and Ripple schools have explored key themes of Merchant of Venice, in collaboration with Studio 3 Arts artists. The outcome was a bold, visually striking live art and performance installation that took the audience on a very special journey through the school.
The schools all explored themes of love, money, justice, loyalty, and religion through a broad range of artistic media. Through a course of in-school workshops with artists, the children have developed a wealth of creative responses, brought together into an innovative contemporary live arts format.
