Our Vision

At the heart of the Circus Play is the belief that “Everyone
Needs to Have Fun.”

Inspiring Change through Circus and Play

We believe that Social Circus and Play are useful tools for engaging with children and young adults to support development of their personal skills, empower them to participate fully in civil society and to spread an agenda of sharing, tolerance, diversity and mutual respect.

Our Values: Diversity, Inclusion, Accessibility, Gender Equality, Sharing, Learning through Play and Fun, and Creativity.

The goal of our projects is to build a framework for a locally-led social circus and play network in Thai/Myanmar border area which nurtures and empowers disadvantaged children and young adults, and people living with disabilities.

With tens of thousands of displaced Myanmar people from many ethnic groups living in migrant camps and other locations, the need for some fun and creativity is vital.

Our Circus and Play workshops are important as an informal educational tool to develop confidence, support learning-skills and to build friendships across diverse communities.
