Opportunity to submit a short film for inclusion during the Worlds Together Conference to be held at Tate Modern in September 2012

Worlds Together is an international conference exploring what’s at stake for the cultural lives of children and the value of the arts in young people’s lives from Shakespeare to the digital realm. This event takes place at Tate Modern 6-8 September and is a partnership between Tate and the Royal Shakespeare Company. It brings together The Unilever Series: turbinegeneration, an international, online educational partnership produced by Tate and sponsored by Unilever and the World Shakespeare Festival, a celebration of Shakespeare as the world’s playwright, produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company for the London 2012 Festival. The conference is in collaboration with the National Theatre and British Museum with further support from Arts Council England and the British Council. Visit for more information.
