In Open Circle 2014 our mission led us to Argentina. During 14 days of hard but rewarding work across the country, our ambassadors and educators taught more than 2000 kids how to juggle. Beyond learning a skill to last a lifetime, it meant empowering young people with creativity, including children with special needs, the autistic and mentally ill. We also gave three masterclasses for circus artists, trained six ambassadors and even performed three different shows for welcoming audiences. And we were honored by being invited to be part of Argentina’s national Festival Payasadas beneficiary event where VKF founder Viktor Kee did a special performance to bring the show to a dramatic close.
In all, we drove more than 2000 kilometers across Argentina, and our thanks go out to the more than 20 volunteers who made this extraordinary experience possible.
