The Palestinian Circus School was established in July 2006 and started with a first group of 10 students and the first show “Circus behind the Wall”. In February 2007 the school opened it’s doors for children from Ramallah and gives weekly sessions for children in Hebron and Jenin.
The school offers children a safe environment for their development.
A place where they learn to cooperate, concentrate and express themselves. The focus is on teamwork and on restoring a positive self image. Confronted with violence, desperation and deprivation of most of their mains basic rights, we want to offer them ways to deal with their environment in a creative way. Breaking the spiral of repeating the damage inflicted on them. Offering them new social role models.
In last instance the circus school wants to offer them a window on the world through the rich international cooperation we aim at.
