The second Circus Explored Youth Exchange brought young circus delegates from Circusful Belfast and In Your Space Circus Derry to Galway for the Mayhem Youth Circus Festival, which took place from the 21st to the 28th of May 2022, organised and hosted by Galway Community Circus.

In Galway, our young participants had the opportunity to meet their peers, learn new Circus tricks together and perform. They also learned ways to become future Youth Circus leaders with professional skill development education, so they can continue to pass on their incredible circus skills to the next generation of circus artists.

The Mayhem Youth Circus Festival is Galway Community Circus’s annual festival celebrating circus. There was a full week of programming and events free for everyone to enjoy.
