Who we are

Galway Community Circus is a charitable organisation dedicated to inspiring and empowering people of all ages and abilities through circus arts. We use the fun and innovative nature of circus as an educational tool for personal, artistic, social and community development.

Galway Community Circus is a pioneer of youth circus in Ireland, committed to the advancement of circus arts through the creation of exciting and enriching opportunities for young people, emerging circus artists and professionals to engage in training, creation and performance on an ongoing basis. Through its groundbreaking programmes and high quality productions, Galway Community Circus has proven itself to be a cradle of artistic excellence and educational innovation in Ireland.

At Galway Community Circus we work towards realising our mission by providing a welcoming and professional space where all members of the community, young people and adults alike, can learn, develop and share a diverse array of circus arts skills. We do this by providing a comprehensive range of weekly classes, specialised workshops and outreach programmes throughout the year.
