Our Mission with the project over the next couple of years is to
Develop circus practice for everyone in the society of Sofia
Establish a kids and youth circus platform, so that social circus activities can take place every day in Sofia.
Create a network between different projects and partners both national and international to discover the reality of this education,
join strengths, and help “education through circus” become valued and recognized in Sofia and Bulgaria.
Our focus is on discovering and improving physical, artistic and social abilities of the children and create different platforms for them to express themselves as individuals as well as in teams, with different circus disciplines as Acrobatic, Unicycle and Juggling.
Social circus aims to build bridges and break down barriers between people and groups,
using circus as a physical and pedagogical tool
to bring people together.
“Circus is Link” as we say in Mini Art Foundation.
