Great news, our project Circus as an Intercultural Encounter has been awarded Erasmus+ funding! The project includes a research process aiming to build a training module on circus as a cultural encounter, a pilot training for trainers where this module will be tested, the publication of a handbook on the social circus methodology for youth workers operating in intercultural settings.
We also announced in July that we received funding for our Circus++ project; to launch a university curriculum on social circus. Our first kick off meeting will be happening soon so watch this space!
