Circus Eruption is the first integrated youth circus in the UK, and was founded in 1991 with the aim of providing a safe and supportive space for young people to learn circus skills. The main aims are integration, inclusion and participation through the medium of circus.
The learning and sharing of new circus and performance skills helps to empower all participants by increasing their self confidence and self esteem, as does the involvement of all members in decision making and the running of Circus Eruption. The integrated nature of the project also means that young people experience a non-judgmental and accepting environment, where they will be encouraged to develop positive attitudes towards others and respect for diversity. Through the skills they learn and people they meet they are able to actively challenge inequality, disadvantage and discrimination.
