Social Circus Panel

Weak ties made strong, building social support through circus. Come discover the “how-to” of social circus in an interactive panel combining the lived experiences of youth participants and three leading practitioners in the field. Through the seven pillars of social circus we will explore how circuses can act as invaluable social support by creating safe spaces where expression, creativity and diversity are celebrated. 

Featured panelists include youth from 14 social circus organizations across Canada facilitated by Marilou Vinet (Cirque Hors Piste), Dean Bareham (Green Fools), Angola Murdoch (LookUp Theatre) and Rebecca Devi Leonard (Cirqiniq).
