Women’s Circus

Women’s Circus has provided training and creative opportunities for community participants and women artists since 1991.

Women’s Circus was founded in 1991 to work with women who were the survivors of violence or abuse and was originally a project of the Footscray Community Arts Centre. Over twenty-five years later, the Women’s Circus is still proudly based in Melbourne’s vibrant West and now works with women of all ages, experience levels and cultural backgrounds as well as with our local communities.

We honour the important legacy of our organisation and the work, commitment and achievements of all those women who have gone before us. We today ‘stand on the shoulders of giants!’
