Circa Workshop Program
In August 2017, ACCOMPLICE, through funding from the Regional Arts Fund, delivered a program of circus workshops for young people in remote communities in the Northern Territory. We worked in partnership with Brisbane-based contemporary circus company Circa to provide high quality workshops for young people in Timber Creek, Jilkminggan and Tangentyere Council in Alice Springs.
At the heart of these workshops is a focus on long-term youth development and engagement with community. The process involved visits and consultations with leaders in each of these areas to ensure the workshops were delivered in the most effective - and, of course, fun - way. Meeting leaders face-to-face allowed us to listen and respond to the community's needs, tailoring the delivery of each workshop rather than imposing a one-size-fits-all model. These meetings and workshops are the beginning of a long-term relationship with these communities in which we hope to jointly develop and create a breadth of cultural experiences.
