International and European Youth and Social Circus Projects, with William Borrell (CARAVAN) and Lynn Carroll (EYCO)

CARAVAN is an international youth and social circus network of circus schools from across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, that advocates for the positive impact of youth and social circus.

EYCO (The European Youth Circus Organisation) represents national umbrella organisations for youth circus across Europe.

Both organisations have developed exciting training projects with their members and partners, supported by European funding.

In this session Will Borrell from CARAVAN, as well as other CARAVAN members, will present two of their current projects:

  • Circus ++ is a 3-year project in partnership with universities to develop the first Europe-wide degree level training in youth and social circus pedagogy;
  • Circus as an Intercultural Encounter is a project to design a training programme and guidebook for trainers working with refugees, asylum seekers and newly arrived migrant youth.

Lynn Carroll, President of EYCO, will present some of EYCO’s past projects developing training for trainers, including EYCO’s current course in development: Ideas of Inclusion, which will be piloted at Circus Rising.
