A day of global celebration
When the call went out to celebrate social circus around the world with the 2nd annual International Social Circus Day, the team in Yangon responded with a pop-up public workshop in Mahabandoola Gardens right in the centre of downtown.
Social Circus Myanmar was one of 44 organisations taking part in a wave of events across the globe aimed at showing the positive impact of social circus. From Myanmar to Madagascar, and Afghanistan to Japan, the aim was to bring fun to local communities and raise awareness of social circus activities.
The Yangon team brought a slack rope, hula hoops, spinning plates, juggling props, stilts, bubbles and more to the park for adults and children to try out. Huge thanks to all involved, especially Julien Ariza for coordinating, facilitators U Pho Ke, Kyaw Min Soe, Anne Bougault, Betti mo, Caroline, Maya Takagi-Vlahek and the social circus team from Mingaladon. Thanks also to David H. Photography.
