Cirque du Monde

Cirque du Monde: The group of young creators and ordinary citizens who contributed to the birth of Cirque du Soleil never forgot where they came from. Rather than tackling a wide range of causes, the Cirque chose to commit itself to at-risk youth through its social circus program, Cirque du Monde. With the aim to foster the personal and social development of these young people, Cirque du Monde actions expressed through social circus workshops, training, support and consulting services, networking and advocacy.  www.cirquedusoleil.com/cirquedumonde

The Social Circus Map: Recently launched by Cirque du Monde, the Social Circus Map uses an online map to plot and index organizations offering social circus workshops. It is the result of efforts made over the last few years to compile a record of all organizations dedicated to this form of intervention as well as the various research projects in progress on this topic.  www.cirquedusoleil.com/socialcircusmap
