The project aims to involve youth workers and artists from various parts of Europe as well as local residents, to exchange and develop educational tools using acrobatics and social circus as a source of inspiration and encouragement. We want to empower young people through movement and play, remind them of their potential and the opportunities of their environment and show them how to become active agents in their personal lives and in their development as members of their community. In circus and acrobatics, dialogue, discussion and exchange of experiences, challenges and perspectives in the work of participants, we actively explore and explore our own potentials and limits of youth work.
Together, participants will explore art and culture as powerful agents producing knowledge and promoting the exchange of ideas and experiences, and having an impact on society. With intense training, plenty of space for interpersonal and intercultural dialogue, we want to reach and sensitize participants to social circus, focusing on partner acrobatics, stage presence and public awareness, as a tool empowerment and positive social change among youth. Partner acrobatics associated with social circus theater drills provide access to social, emotional, cognitive and physical experiences as well as self-assessment and self-organization, autonomy, goal acquisition, solidarity, self-esteem, physical well- being, communication and adaptability. Theater and clown exercises allow participants to develop essential skills such as stage presence, public awareness and openness to connect to their own vulnerability and sensitivity, and offer a fun way to international participants and locals to connect.
