Circus for All!
Description: The aim of this workcamp is to contribute to an inclusive project called "One for All" where a "social circus" methodology is experimented and through music, dramatic expression and circus, they promote personal, social, motor and cognitive skills of young and adults with mild, moderate and severe motor and mental disabilities (the circus as an inclusion tool). Through this workcamp it will be possible to adapt spaces, activities and artistic presentations, making a personalized accompaniment of all young people and adults with disabilities to make their presentation at the Festival of Circus to be held from 12th to 15th July in Famalicão. The workcamp allows the human and logistic resources so that the spaces and materials can be adapted ergonomically to the target group.
Type of Work: The structures are painted, decorated and prepared for the Festival and that the participants can accompany (and learn) young people and adults with disabilities in their circus performances. The tasks of the participants will be to accompany, practise, learn and teach young people and adults with disabilities some circus performances, together with supervisors and teachers, and support all the dimensions of their performance before, during and after the Youth Festival of Circus. Besides the artistic and supporting tasks, participants will also be asked to decorate the space for the Festival making sure it is accessible for everyone (for example with mobility problems).
Accommodation: Breakfast will be provided at the accommodation (school) by the monitors and a rotating team among the participants. Since the work starts early (to avoid the hours of greatest heat), we intend to serve a snack midmorning to gain energy and delay lunchtime. The journey is continuous and at lunch, the food will be delivered by a catering restaurant at school by 14pm. During the afternoon, the association will provide snacks like yogurt, chocolate milk and croissant with ham and cheese. Dinner will be served at the accommodation at 8 pm (a warm meal to prepare for a comforting evening).
