Social circus without borders is a project between all 4V countries, that focus on methods of social circus.
Social circus as an innovative approach based on the circus art aims to assist personal and social developement
of disadvantaged or disabled people.
Project members participate in 4 trainings (in 2016-2017) in 4V countries, leaded by invited experts,
in order to gain knowledge and increase their skills needed in social circus work.
The Project was created to share theoretical information and practical experiences in the field of social circus (S.C.) among the project partners and to disseminate it to a wider circus and social professional community.
S.C. means to carry out social work with circus tools. S.C. is an effective tool to work with special groups who have fewer possibilities: immigrants, physical or mental disabilities, ethnic minorities, elder people, orphans, street children, youth or adult prisoners.
In our project we aim TO MAKE SOCIAL CIRCUS A WIDER-USED METHOD OF WORKING WITH SOCIALLY EXCLUDED GROUPS. To show that circus can be an alternative way of reaching social, physical and mental development.
We are to provide 3 different SPECIALIZED 3-days VOCATIONAL TRAINING, leaded by proffessionals, to key personnel from our organisations, and one international training in cooperation with Cirque du Soleil (Canada). Specializes trainings (juggling, juggling for disable and aerial) will take place in every partner country. International Cirque du Soleil trainig will take place in Poland.
The project aims to:
– secure the continuous vocational education of professionals
– transfer information and make new contacts, meet new possible cooperators
– consolidate our programs: continue working on a weekly basis with our target groups at national level
– build national networks: our project activities and European presence help to build the partnership with national institutions
– publish results: write articles and give a lecture to share our work with the wider social and circus communities
– have a specialized work with our focus groups with more experience we can realize a higher quality of work and in continuing the process we can see real changes in our focus groups
