European Circus Community in Berlin
Start date: Aug 1, 2014,
End date: Feb 29, 2016
In september 2014, CABUWAZI welcomed four European volunteers from Italy, Spain and the UK. They stayed for 12 months and worked at one of the 5 circusplaces of Cabuwazi-GrenzKultur in Berlin. The volunteers assisted and took active part in the school projects, youth leisure activities and international youth meetings. Our work is based on the education of circus arts, which provides methodological means for social meeting and exchange, offers a space for personal development and expression and a learning field for a wide range of practical competences.
The volunteers had different backgrounds, some with a lot of circus experience, others with background in Theatre. One of them never finished high school, the others had at least 1 bachlor or master diplome.
Our goals are to integrate the volunteers in our circusactivities through young people from the local community, staff and other volunteers, and make them comfortable with our way of working. They are accompanied through the different activities and will work with children and youth with different social, cultural and religious backgrounds. They learn to work with, understand and respect this diversity.
