Every year Upsala-Circus artists, children from groups of social risk, go on a tour to Europe, from England to Germany. A tour like that also allows us to raise funds for our circus running costs. But our old circus bus has driven dozens of thousands of miles by now and had to be repaired many times. It is now very expensive in maintenance, and is not safe for any long-distance travel.
We need a new bus to ensure the safety of our trips for our little passengers and for everybody else on the road. A new bus will allow us to plan a tour in summer 2014. A trip abroad, performing for wide audience, is an important part of social adaptation program that our young artists participate in, and also a great opportunity for Upsala-Circus to raise funds for our projects for the next year, and to find new partners and sponsors.
The new bus will allow more people to see Upsala-Circus and know about our wonderful method.
The bus will also help the children to feel themselves a real circus team with their own props, tent and even a vehicle! They will paint the bus so it would look colorful and professional, they will learn to handle circus property with care. Overall, it will make the young artists more responsible and mature.
