Projects and collaborations
The project "Research on Youth and Social Circus Pedagogy" runs between 2014-2016. During 2015 the focus has been on collecting data. Three questionnaires was created and sent our to three different target groups: existing circus schools, existing and potential employers as well as active circus performers/educators. The surveys have mapped the existing training programs, employment opportunities, education possibilities as well as what the different group wish for in the form of continued education programs. The project has developed a common job profile and started work on a common skills framework.
The results will be presented at a European seminar in June, 2016 in Brussels. CIRCUS+ is financially supported by the EU's education support Erasmus+.
CTF in Action 2015-2016
CTF in Action is a one-year project supported by the EU's education support Erasmus+, and takes place between October 2015 and October 2016. It is a continuation of the project "Circus Trans Formation" which ran from 2012 to 2014 and was a collaboration between non-profit circus schools from eight countries and "Université Catholique de Louvain", Belgium. The project was wraped up in July 2014 with a European seminar in Brussels. At the seminar the circus arts was presented as a tool for social inclusion, in Europe and beyond. Caravan also published the first European traing guide in educating people who want to work with circus as a pedagogical tool in socially disadvantaged environments.
In order to be able to further educate more pedagogues in the training guide "Circus Trans Formation" 20 instructors are currently being trained in 10 different countries in the project "CTF in action". The training takes place in Stockholm, Tampere, Belfast and Brussels.
Both projects are funded by the European Union Erasmus+ programme.
