Access & Support

Pathways into an inclusive circus community

Women’s Circus acknowledges the many barriers to participating people face. We work hard to create inclusive and responsive options for each individual’s access needs.

Women’s Circus training, creative and commuity programs celebrate the physical and imaginative potential of the human body and nurture self-awareness and self-esteem.

Our Drill Hall home is fully wheelchair accessible, we have trainers with basic level Auslan skills and we strive to support each and every training member’s circus journey. 

Get in touch with our Training Manager today to discuss your access requirements and find the right training pathway for you:

All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, trans and non binary people can access our training programs and membership free of charge. To discuss your enrolment please contact our Training Manager on or (03)9687 3665. 

“The accessibility of the Women’s Circus facilities and the expert support and ingenuity of the trainer enables me to take more risks and forge new connections

between my body and brain.”
