VULCANA WOMEN’S CIRCUS: Circus As Empowerment

Vulcana run circus workshops for adults and children as well as developing community projects with all kinds of different communities, the focus always being on creating partnerships and empowerment through circus. Vulcana value women as leaders and role models, and believe that empowered women are essential in building and shaping strong communities. They use circus as a transformational tool which can build empowerment whilst encouraging expanded notions of “normal”. Vulcana are proud to continue their work and excited to be sharing this with the audience at TEDxSouthBank.
