Circus for community!
Circus for community!
The application deadline has passed.
Activity descriptionThe project involves a group volunteer activity (with 10 ESC volunteers) that works toward creation of an inclusive, intergenerational and intercultural community circus festival. The process of preparation for the festival will cover the preparation of circus groups of youth and children from different social and cultural backgrounds to attend and perform at the festival. At the same time, the preparations will also cover scenography, arranging, designing an art exhibition, etc. The concept of the festival will be based on the creation of social and intergenerational social space in a public space. Volunteers will be involved in the design of street actions and a circus parade through the city. They will also have the opportunity to express their artistic potential through an open stage or other performing or connecting roles that might interest them.
