Circa Workshop Program
In August 2017, ACCOMPLICE, through funding from the Regional Arts Fund, will deliver a program of circus workshops for young people in remote communities in the Northern Territory. We are working 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 has involved visits and consultations with leaders in each of these areas to ensure the workshops are delivered in the most effective - and, of course, fun - way. Meeting leaders face-to-face has 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.
