Rural Circus Lab – Call for Participants

Rural Circus Lab is an initiative born from the growing interest of young people in rural areas related to the circus world. We’re now looking for participants! Read the Call and apply!

What is it about?

It will take place 15th to 23th of September 2019 – 15th in Zaragoza, Spain . The activities will be carried out in ARTmosfera artistic complex, where 24 young people from Germany, Italy, France and Spain, brought together by their passion for circus and scenic arts, will participate during 10 days. The main objective of this project is to increase the knowledge of performing arts among young people by exchanging knowledge and establishing values such as respect, equality, and tolerance with the potential to generate a cultural impact in the region.

Who?

The project is oriented at young people who have an interest in performing arts and who belong to organisations from different countries and practicing different circus disciplines. The aim is not only to develop physical fitness and motor skills but also creativity and diverse social skills such as communication, empathy and cooperation.

What kind of Activities?

The activities will be based on the methods of non-formal education, in a continuous, horizontal and non-directed process. The main activities will consist of initiation workshops to different circus disciplines as well as debates and talks about the reality of the performing arts in each of the participants’ country of origin. After completing the project, all the audiovisual materials generated during the project will be compiled for dissemination. Promoting creativity, exercise and self-awareness through circus acrobatics can guarantee interest and increase healthier lifestyles among young people.
