Escuela Nacional de Circo de Puerto Rico
For five years, Escuela Nacional de Circo de Puerto Rico has been teaching circus art to young people, promoting it as a profession and a tool for social action. Their carp in Río La Plata - which housed their programs had to be dismantled and parts of it lost in the chaos of the hurricane. The land where it stood was flooded, materials and equipment ruined. With no functional physical space, the group launched a mobile circus and brought their Circos Sociales “Social Circuses” to 4 communities in different regions - reaching over 350 young people. These workshops not only served as a space for fun and laughter, but also integrating psychological and therapeutic processes introduced by a social worker that was added on to the team.
