Introduction to Social Circus Pedagogy (2 ECTS)
Social circus is a measure of intervention based on the combination of circus arts and social-pedagogy. It targets various at-risk groups in order to support the empowerment and emancipation of individuals and assist with participants’ personal and social development by nurturing their self-esteem and trust in others, as well as by helping them to acquire social skills, express their creativity and realize their potential in order to become active citizens. In this approach, the primary goal is not to learn the circus arts, but rather to create social change helping marginalized individuals assume their place in a society. Various studies indicate that the socio-pedagogical and welfare impacts of Social Circus are undeniable.
