About the Organisation

Organisation Name : Westside Circus
Westside Circus is a unique not-for-profit organisation in Melbourne, dedicated to creative approaches that produce transformative programs for young people, aged 3–25. These programs promote individual and relational abilities, equipping participants with important skills for everyday life.

For 22 years we have connected young people and their communities with professional artists to create projects and activities that build self-esteem, respect, autonomy and creativity along with physical literacy and fitness.

Our programs focus on the personal development of participants, by developing qualities such as open-mindedness, self-esteem, tolerance, respect, responsibility, autonomy, perseverance and self-confidence. These qualities are basic requirements for work-readiness and are transferable across most industries and we establish long-term partnerships across youth services and schools working with disadvantaged youth to help them achieve recognised qualifications.

Through actively emphasising transferable skills that are inherent in circus (i.e. trusting peers in exercises like doubles trapeze or understanding persistence and breaking down stages of learning through juggling) Westside Circus gives young people the confidence, creativity and autonomy required to positively change the world.

Our values-based workshops and other artistic activities are used as a learning tool to embed creativity, and kinaesthetic learning within educational programs, or to supplement formal education programs. Our goal is to encourage a sense of purpose and build positive pathways for disengaged youth, CALD communities, youth with disability, and mainstream communities.

WSC endorses the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 27:
“Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts...”

We believe that:
• This right applies crucially to young people.
• Access to arts and cultural activity helps young people develop pathways to a positive future.
• The diverse activities in circus inspire attainable goals for all ages, interests and abilities making it the most accessible of the performing arts.

We are excited by how each young person responds creatively to the world around them.
