The 7 Fingers


About the organization

The 7 Fingers is a contemporary circus collective whose approach centres on respecting one another and sharing knowledge. The group believes in the potential of circus performance as an outreach tool for at-risk teens and hopes to join forces with social circus organization Cirque Hors Piste.

Goal of the project

To support disadvantaged youth by putting together a cultural mediation program based on the behind-the-scenes aspects of the creative process. To help parents and their children feel less isolated and experience a change of scenery by holding family workshops in a safe environment and positive atmosphere.
