OSU's Royal Web Feature!

The main page of the OSU website is curently running a video and story about the Arts Initiative’s collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company. The feature follows the first group of local school teachers (above) working with the RSC over the summer, and highlights the university’s commitment to the arts, outreach to local public school children, education and building international relationships.

The piece was beautifully produced by Kristen Convery and Jake Housh in Ohio State’s New Media Unit. It will also be promoted via Ohio State’s social media platforms, and in Connect, the e-newsletter for OSU alumni and donors.
