A week of encounters and emotions for a diverse group of youths
The first edition of the Professional Workshop Series – Social Circus Component (Ateliers professionnels – volet cirque social), sponsored by Desjardins, was held in our Studios from January 12 to 16.
Realised through a partnership with Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Hors Piste, the workshops offered access to our specialized facilities and equipment to youth hailing from Nunavut, Nunavik, and the rest of Canada. Participants also received professional mentoring from The 7 Fingers, Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Hors-Piste. The act they developed was performed at the Tohu during Circaskina, a national conference on social circus.
The workshop series, sponsored by Desjardins, has two components: one for social circus and another for emerging circus. The next editions will take place later this year.
