Circus is joyous, celebratory, and risky. It engages the body, the mind and the heart and has the power to transform young people and the world they live in.
Circus is a stepping stone to big dreams.
Flipside’s bursary program is all about helping young people achieve these dreams regardless of background or circumstance. We recently sat down with Mark, 14 – a recipient of a Flipside bursary – to chat about circus and his dreams.
Mark sees circus as a great way to develop the strength and skills to make it in the world of wrestling… keep reading Mark’ story
“I thought circus might be all about clowns and popcorn – but it’s not. I didn’t expect all these fit people! All these skills… really it’s like a gym. They get you really fit and the atmosphere is so energetic”
The Flipside bursary helps children and young people facing financial and social barriers access free and subsidised circus training.
Your generous gift will help us reach our target of $1,500 to run this program for the remainder of 2018.
The bursary is part of Flipside’s social circus programs that include regular programs for children with a disability, community programs, and programs in remote and regional Queensland.
