We need your help. We are applying to Leith Chooses – a local funder that supports projects in Leith. However there is limited funding, and we need your vote.
We have teamed up with Aerial Art House to run a project about rebuilding social connections, sparking playfulness and fun for families in Leith. Our project will create a 6-week programme for 64 children with free circus workshops in hula hoop, juggling and aerial arts. This will lead up to a free outdoor circus celebration on Leith Links, with free performances and workshops for all residents to enjoy.
Children have faced the worst of social isolation during the pandemic, experiencing loneliness and difficulty making friends. We know that circus can have a phenomenal impact on wellbeing, making friends and boosting confidence and we want to bring this to children in Leith.
Voting is open from the 24th-31st of January.
We will really appreciate your help to bring accessible circus to Leith. You are eligible to vote if you are 8 years old or over, and live, work, study or volunteer in Leith. If you can’t vote, don’t worry – you can still help us by sharing this post!
