 Description 

Facilitated by two Cirque du Soleil-certified social circus trainers, this training will be based on a series of theoretical and practical knowledge, themes that have been discussed at international meetings of social circus organizations and that have been tested and validated during about a hundred training sessions conducted by Cirque Du Soleil with the collaboration of their partners in several countries. Appropriate themes such as group management and cohesion, physical and emotional security of the group, conflict management, facilitation techniques, etc... can be addressed, depending on the targeted needs and experience of the participants.

In addition, the training aims at equipping circus instructors, artists, social workers and educators in their performance of circus workshops. It will enable them to better understand the overall context of social circus intervention and to develop facilitation skills by addressing themes such as communication, teamwork, ethics, youth in precarious situations and the role of creativity in social circus practice. The articulation of this knowledge will allow for a much more refined understanding of the language that describes social circus, the development of innovative concepts, as well as the exploration of avenues for development.

It should be remembered that social circus is an innovative social intervention approach that uses the circus arts to promote the personal and social development of people in precarious situations.

This workshop is developed for artists, social workers and social circus trainers from different regions of Quebec.
