Why workshops are so beneficial

Personal Development 

Through developing personal development skills such as confidence, team working and teaching the processes of learning our community circus projects contribute to developing the employment and educational prospects.

Social issues

These projects can also be effective in addressing deeper social problems such as crime through engaging and distracting young people who might otherwise be engaged in destructive tendencies. The perceived danger of circus skills make our activities very effective at reaching young people who are disinterested in many activities and disengaged with school.

Circus for schools

Circo Kernow Workshops
We run circus skills workshops for students aged 5 and over.

Circus is very effective at engaging young people alienated from traditional forms of education. 

Circus skills can be very effective ways to help participants develop concentration, retention, conceptual understanding self-awareness and the process of learning.  These can then be applied to more conventional learning situations in the core subjects. The range of activities covered in a circus workshop mean they appeal to young people of all interests and abilities.

We tailor the workshops to a theme of your choice, and can create a performance with the participants based on your theme.

Trapeze and rope techniques (rigging required)

Social Prescribing

Social prescribing, also sometimes known as community referral, is a means of enabling health professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services. The referrals generally, but not exclusively, come from professionals working in primary care settings, for example, GPs or practice nurses.

Recognising that people’s health and wellbeing are determined mostly by a range of social, economic and environmental factors, social prescribing seeks to address people’s needs in a holistic way. It also aims to support individuals to take greater control of their own health. 

Circo Kernow and Swamp Circus Trust are proud to offer social prescribing opportunities across Cornwall.
