Take Back The Streets

31 May 2019

If like us, you're counting down the seconds until summer but still looking for something incredible to kick of your holidays, fear not, we have you covered! 

Not long until school's 'out for summerrrrr', we have the perfect treat for you, your child or your group.

In Your Space Circus is proud to announce its fantastic upcoming youth street arts project. Thanks to Peace 4 Funding and Derry City and Strabane District Council we have sparked the exciting Take Back The Streets project, aligning with the council's Youth 19 campaign.

We have CIRCUS, we have DANCE, we have GRAFFITI, we have PARKOUR, and its all FREE.   

We're offering a 5-day Summer Academy for you to learn from the best in the business, and showcase your work at your very own festival.

In Your Space Circus will be teaming up with Jump NI/The Playground, (Parkour), UV Arts (Graffiti) and dance company Create Dance to develop an amazing festival celebrating street art.  It is a completely free project for 12-24 year olds living in the Derry-Londonderry, Strabane and Donegal areas.  Grounded in good relations themes, and with young talent at its heart, the project will culminate in a Youth Street Art Festival bringing together all the street art disciplines for an awe inspiring Youth Street Arts Festival.

No previous experience required, the participants pick one discipline for the Academy week. They have to commit to:

- At least one advance workshop between now and July 

- A 5-day Summer Academy beginning 1st July 2019

- Participation in the Street Arts Festival on the 6th July 2019

- A follow-up session in September / October 2019

If you would like to register, please fill in this online form...https://docs.google.com/forms/d/15vIEjZi0C3hutwTCxOa1Si1IXyiDCQVlRHrD2YxKa_c/edit 

Or if you lead a group who would be interested in this we'd love to come and tell your school/ group/ class more about it.

We really want to make sure that we reach children and young people who, for whatever reason, don't get a chance to take part in something like this. But it is open to all!
