Youth Circus member Fred shares his experience at ABCirk in Belgium

At Galway Community Circus, our aim is to actively encourage opportunities for a new generation of home-grown circus artists/educators to emerge in Ireland. In 2016 we began a Youth Leadership Scheme called ABCirk for members aged 16-20 to develop leadership skills and competencies in circus pedagogy. At the end of October, a few of our members visited Belgium to participate in an exchange. Read on to learn about Galway Community Circus member Fred Rush’s experience at ABCirk this autumn.
