Social, Community and Youth Circus
Produced by the researcher Leila Jancovich on behalf of Arts Council England as part of the Young People’s Participatory Theatre project, the bulk of this document is the presentation of statistical data from a series of questionnaires and consultations targeting the UK youth circus sector. The report gives an idea of the geographic spread and demographic range of youth circus, the organisational structure of providers and their level of activity, and the funding and impact of the sector, among other things. The report makes a series of recommendations for actions to develop the sector.
One of the outputs of the CASCAS (Circus and Street Arts Come and See) project, which saw four groups of industry professionals tour the circus and street arts scenes in the UK, Sweden, Finland and Belgium, Postcards From Street Arts and Circus is a short, pamphlet-length book written by the researcher Yohann Floch, who accompanied the tours in all four countries.
