What is Discover Circus?

Discover Circus a local social enterprise offering training and community to those who wish to explore the circus arts.

It was created, under the umbrella of the Nelson Circus Performers Association, by a group of local artists and performers that value artistic expression, cooperation, inclusiveness, and play. We wish to share the benefits, both for body and mind, that pursuing the circus arts at any level can provide.

We also recognise the powerful progress that has been achieved through the financial support of the below organizations.
