YOUTH CIRCUS IN IRELAND 2014
Start date: Aug 1, 2014,
End date: Sep 30, 2015
YOUTH CIRCUS IN IRELAND 2014 project will take place at the headquarters of the Galway Community Circus in St Joseph's Community Centre, Shantalla – Galway, Ireland. The EVS placement will last 11 moths - from 4th September 2014 to 4th August 2015.
Galway Community Circus is looking for two volunteers. Ecole de Cirque de Bruxelles and Cabuwazi will send young, highly motivated circus students to Galway for an EVS placement in the field of art, culture and sport.
The volunteers will be involved in the activities of Galway Community Circus who, through the knowledge and practice of circus arts and circus education, seek to develop young people's ability to get involved in society, to express their creativity and to contribute to the development of tolerance and a common European citizenship.
The preferred method for the planning and implementation of the activities is related to the non - formal education. The skills acquired by the volunteer will be certified through Youthpass and good practices achieved with the project will be shared in the context of organizations.
Main aims of the project are to improve youth circus teaching in Europe and to encourage young people to seek future work placements around Europe. We want to give young European circus students the opportunity to experience Ireland's culture and improve their English skills while participating in activities they are passionate about.
The positive impact of the project on local, regional, national and international level would provide a stronger international cooperation between circus professionals and organisations in Europe, a greater awareness of circus as a tool of youth work and building confidence of young people in the field of performing arts to participate on international projects in future.
