A Good Time For All
A Good Time For All
Our flagship program, A Good Time For All shares the joy of circus, making a meaningful difference to the lives of many, no matter how big or small your gift. We believe everyone should experience Circus Oz, regardless of income or background.
Some people in our community are less fortunate and we know in some cases we need to lend a helping hand, so groups like Asylum Seekers Resource Centre, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Council of Single Mothers, and The Big Issue, people who otherwise could not afford to attend a live performance can access a ticket to Circus Oz.
Each year Circus Oz aims to work with our Humanitarian partner organisations to provide Big Top tickets to children and families to experience the infectious joy which comes from Circus Oz.
In 2017, at our Melbourne Big Top season we were able to provide 1,268 tickets to children and their families to see Model Citizens. Thank you to our generous donors for making this possible!
A donation of $135 provides tickets for an entire family to experience Circus Oz under the Big Top.
$50 gives one person the opportunity;
$1,400, a whole community
Relaxed, Audio Described and Auslan Interpreted
Support us in expanding access to our audiences to include a Relaxed, Audio described and Auslan Interpreted performances to our performances. A relaxed performance is a show with a relaxed environment for children and families that experience Autism Sprectrum Disorder (ASD) or similar sensory and communication disabilities. We create a welcoming environment, so they too can join in the fun under the Circus Oz Big Top.
We also provice Audio described perforamnces for people who experience a vision impairment and Auslan Interpreted performances for who are Deaf.
For these accessible peformances, we require additional support to be able to offer a subsidised ticket offer, the provision of movement and quiet zones, expert training for all our front of house staff and the skilled staff and technical equipment to provide our Auslan and audio described performances.
Everyone should have the opportunity to see a live performance and you can provide A Good Time For All.
Hand2Hand is our program for young people experiencing social, cultural and financial barriers.
Young people are given the opportunity to attend our circus classes and education programs. This community access program embodies inclusiveness and diversity and is only made possible through your gift of human kindness.
Through this immersive program participants will attend Circus Oz classes for free, and also be provided with additional opportunities to attend performances and meet performers.
Your impact is that these young people can challenge themselves in a safe and supportive environment, improve their self-confidence through achieving personal goals, and build relationships by developing trust in others and themselves.
Circus is not only a chance to laugh, learn a new skill, and have fun but it can be life-changing.
