Vision To transform lives and communities through the power of circus arts and street theatre
The mission statement of the Belfast Community Circus commits to:
“Transform lives and communities through the power of circus arts and street theatre “
To this end, the Belfast Community Circus acts not only as a vehicle for bringing about personal development through teaching children and young people in some of the most disadvantaged communities in Northern Ireland, but also as a training school for professional teachers and performers of circus arts.
In addition, the Circus acts as a promoter for performers, in the form of Premiere Circus, and as a venue to host visiting and indigenous circus productions.
As well as this, Belfast Community Circus boasts a cross community Youth Circus which has been run continuously throughout the troubled times of the past twenty three years, providing training and performance opportunities for young people aged 8-18 irrespective of their backgrounds.
Since 1999, the School has been resident in purpose built circus premises in a neutral area right in the heart of the city of Belfast.
