We need your support to make it possible to run drama and confidence workshops with people who identify as LGBTQIA*.

1623 takes part in Derbyshire LGBT+ Pride - please click on the photo to support our workshopsIn partnership with the Derbyshire LGBT+ charity, the workshops explore identity and celebrate differences by focusing on characters and scenes from Shakespeare's plays, playing parts and working together.

The workshops are part of 1623's project this autumn called LADY M, in which drag artist Shane Lynch creates a new act based on his own life story and the character of Lady Macbeth from Shakespeare's play.

Our aim is to open up the process by which Shane creates his new role by inviting workshop participants to identify, explore and become their own Shakespearean alter egos in a safe and friendly environment.

It's all about bringing people together, developing confidence and wellbeing, and celebrating how we all contribute to society while exploring the work of Shakespeare, one of the greatest humanitarians.

We need to raise £500 by the end of September 2017, so that we can pay professional artists to facilitate the workshops before the end of the season.

Thank you.
