Social Circus Guidebook FREE
Posted December 22, 2011
Finnish Guidebook on Social Circus Available Online in English

Finland is leading the way with social circus research, thanks to a project administered by The Centre for Practise as Research in Theatre at Tampere University and the funding from the European Social Fund through The Lapland Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment.

The guidebook has been created from the experience of 35 circus teachers who have worked on the project for two years. They have all together taught circus to over 60 different groups and had over 1,100 participants during the project. The guidebook gives practical hints on different areas related to social circus, ranging from starting a new group to constructing workshops etc.

The English version of the guidebook is free to download here.
Note from the CircusNYC Editors: Hat tip to the American Youth Circus Organization for publicizing this. If you're interested in youth circus, please consider joining this great organization. More info at
