CIRCO DEL SILENCIO
Presentation / Who are we?
We are the artistic collective "Impulso del silencio" founded by Ivana Duzanec, circus artist and sign language interpreter (HZJ and ISL) and Julien Rossin, dancer and choreographer originally from Marseille.
For the past two years, we have been organizing different projects and cultural activities for deaf people: dance, circus, and parkour courses, as well as the interpretation of artistic performances.
We are organizing this fundraiser in order to realize a social circus project "Circus of Silence" in Bolivia as volunteers.
WHAT IS CIRCUS OF SILENCE?
We were contacted in 2019 by the foundation "Doctors of Happiness" in Bolivia, who organize different programs for people with social and health difficulties, inviting us to do voluntary work with deaf children. Since 1999, the foundation has developed 3 different projects: for hospitalized people, the elderly, and regarding health education.`
Waar dient de collecte voor
In October and November of 2019, we will develop the project "Circus of Silence," which consists of offering artistic dance and circus courses in 3 big cities of Bolivia: Santa Cruz, Cochabamba, and Tarija, gathering a total of 500 participants.
We will be present for one week in each city. The idea is to develop a space for the transmission of knowledge, as well as a space for creation in order to make a final presentation.The beneficiaries of this project will be deaf adolescents and adults.
Our goal is to favor social inclusion, and promote self-esteem and social union within families and communities through artistic practices. As it is a non-profit project, the foundation will deal with internal expenses, but we are looking for support to finance the cost of air travel.
Flight Cost : BCN - La Paz : 915€/pers (sky scanner)
If we get more money, we'll invest in intern cost and buy new material.
We hope to make this beautiful project a reality and to continue our mission. Your help is indispensable, and we thank you for your interest.
