Urgently in need of a new space, we have a grand plan- to raise a Big Top in Fremantle!
Please help us raise $10,000.
CircusWA has been a vibrant inhabitant of Fremantle for 30 years. We run a range of classes and workshops, support professional circus artists and maintain a youth performance troupe- Sliders Youth Circus.
The Big Top will provide a home for our activities, as well as creating an exciting new performance venue. Our dream is that the Big Top will become an inspiring and inclusive space, that will also allow us to engage directly with the community through performances, open days and workshops.
The Big Top will be raised and ready to welcome the public by the July school holidays.
CircusWA is a fixture of the Fremantle community, delivering regular performances at local festivals and events. Raising the Big Top will provide an exciting opportunity to cement CircusWA right in the heart of Fremantle giving circus a visible and accessible home. It will also give us a great base to reach out to the outer metro communities.
Located in Princess May Park, the Big Top will bring new life and excitement to the eastern end of the city. There has not been a Big Top in Fremantle for many years and we are thrilled to have this opportunity to bring the excitement of the Big Top back!
We already have support from the city council, state government, and many local partners, but are requiring funds to install the Big Top into a state of the art all-season accessible space!
CircusWA is a non-profit organisation and all donations will go directly to fund the raising of the Big Top. The final result will be an 11m high, double-poled, traditional circus tent with a 340 sq m floor and two internal spaces. The Big Top will be used for all of our circus classes and workshops, provide a fully equipped training space for professional circus artists and also be a fabulous venue for live performance.
ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
