We are excited to be hosting the Circus Ignite program in conjunction with Queensland Health. Running for 6 weeks from mid-May 2016, participants with severe and enduring mental illnesses will be able to access circus as a method to fulfil their sensory needs and increase capacity to live everyday life.

 

Why Circus?

Circus is unique in that it is associated with excitement, adventure and physicality, which can result in significantly more intrinsic motivation than a traditional group program. Circus activities provide an opportunity to target multiple therapeutic goals within each session (including social skills, cognitive capacity, gross and fine motor skills, sensory integration and processing and physical health).
