Circoncept 2019

Summary
 
The aim of Circoncept project is to DEVELOP the PEDAGOGICAL APPROACH of the Hungarian Juggling Association by getting to know the work of four internationally recognized circus associations which have significant work on education and by participating in their trainings. This we want to accomplish by developing the Association’s current and future educators’,management’s PEDAGOGICAL COMPETENCIES, the CREATION OF AN EDUCATIONAL PLATFORM and securing the Association’s constant development with the CREATION OF A regularly sitting EDUCATIONAL WORKING GROUP. Furthermore, our goal is to INCREASE the NUMBER OF OUR EDUCATORS, to RAISE A HIGHER LEVEL OF USING CIRCUS DISCIPLINES and their EDUCATION, to IMPROVE our WORKING METHODS in line with the DEVELOPMENT of OUR MANAGEMENT to keep up with the innovations and ensure the organizational background for them. Besides we aim to MAP NEW ORGANIZATIONAL PROFILES and to PRELUDE them, and to GAIN NEW KNOWLEDGE, PRACTICES to the existing ones for example SOCIAL CIRCUS. Working together with international organizations grounds our INTERNATIONAL NETWORKING, our DEEPER INFILTRATION IN EUROPEAN NETWORKS, CREATION OF NEW PROJECTS. OUR INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS are excellent circus schools. KATAPULT is an association located in Berlin the main profile of which is to ORGANIZE UNIQUE CIRCUS WORKSHOPS with educators from all over the world, but their partner circus’s             SOCIAL CIRCUS WORK is emblematic as well and our participants who go for job shadowing are going to get to know this. CIRQUEON is a Czech circus which is very similar to ours in their wide range of activities, but they have a few years more of experience. Here we are going to profit from the EVERYDAY ORGANIZATIONAL ISSUES, their ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE and their PEDAGOGICAL POINT OF VIEW. At VERTIGO mainly their ADMINISTRATIVE BACKGROUND is a highlight for us, we get to know how a well working ACCREDITATION SYSTEM can be CREATED and OPERATED. At GIOCOLERIE & DINTORNI we get to know the working method of a WELL-STRUCTURED ORGANIZATIONAL NETWORK, the SPECIFIC EDUCATIONAL METHODS BY AGE AND MOTIVATION, we can have a look at their COOPERATION WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF ROME
and their work on the SOCIAL CIRCUS field. Out of 21 participants From our current and future EDUCATORS 12 are going to participate in a one week long TRAINING. From our educators and management 9 are going to participate in a three weeks long JOB SHADOWING activity. We plan to realize the project between SEPTEMBER 2019 and SEPTEMBER 2021 which contains the PREPARATION OF THE PARTICIPANTS in several phases with the PROJECT COORDINATOR, the MENTOR, the HOST MENTOR and the LANGUAGE TEACHER: Kick-off meeting, professional preparation, language preparation, cultural preparation, practical preparation. The FOLLOW-UP process we plan to realize continuously during the project by the MENTORS, HOST MENTORS, PROJECT MANAGER and the PEDAGOGICAL WORKING GROUP which is helped by the participants’ written report and the satisfaction survey. The EFFICIENCY of the project is going to be measured with a personal interview, a survey and  it The aim of Circoncept project is to DEVELOP the PEDAGOGICAL APPROACH of the Hungarian Juggling Association by getting to know the work of four internationally recognized circus associations which have significant work on education and by participating in their trainings.

CIRCOLLABORATIVE TOOLS 2016-2019

This international collaboration is responding to important current challenges and aims at developping and improving the use of online collaborative tools among our contemporary circus sector, finding common work methods at a European scale.
CIRCollaborative Tools was a European cooperation project of 9 partners for 2016-2019 where European circus centers and festivals worked together.
Digital collaborative tools were examined  on three major themes:
    Spaces and resources management
    Fostering creativity and artistic research
    Management of collaboration projects
Activities included action-training workshops on digital collaborative tools for cultural workers and artists. Full-scale digital tools’ experiments were done witin artistic residencies for 8 companies, 2 artistic research Labs for young artists, 4 study visits in circus centers and within a social circus action.
CIRCollaborative Tools was funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

Previous projects

Vocational training for circus trainers - Erasmus+ 2017-2018

 

In the course of the project we gave development opportunities and contact opportunities for the Hungarian juggling society in TWO EDUCATIONAL DIRECTIONS of the Circus World

• HOBBY

• SOCIAL

Of these, the development of the hobbies education, ie the Leisure Time CIRCUS sector is of the utmost importance.
 

Our partner in BERLIN can provide insights into all branches of circus art, and internationally renowned artists work at KATAKOMBEN. They work and hold high-level training, but are also connected to other places, like KATAPULT, CABUWAZI, and a lot more in the city. Here, we have sent jugglers who want to develop in a professional, well-established education and training organization and are interested at the social side of the profession.

Our partner in LUXEMBOURG is a circus school that is not established for professional training, but rather aims to give students a joyful hobby and improve their coordination with the circus tools. Here are our teachers who wanted to introduce and promote juggling as a RECREATIONAL ACTIVITY.

• We will send 2 PEOPLE for 3 weeks to LUXEMBOURG in 2 TURNS

• once TO 2 PEOPLE for 1 WEEK to BERLIN, possibly taking care for gender balance (6 in total in one year).

 

The exact dates are:.

08.-28.01.2018. Luxembourg

26.02.-.04.03.2018. Berlin

05.-25.03.2018. Luxembourg

 

 

On the HOMEPAGE and AT CIRCUS LOCATIONS we announced the application. The participants were selected by internal decision by the presidency. We took into account motivation, technical knowledge, pedagogical practice and competence, reliability, language proficiency and association activity. Prior to the trip we had a thorough language, professional and cultural preparation.

During their excursion, the participants of the 3-week travels set up WORK PLANS, the beneficiaries of one week's journeys created INTERVIEW with their colleagues outside. After that, the participants of the longer journeys created a PROFESSIONAL ARTICLE, which was made available on the website www.zsonglor.hu, held a PRESENTATION and an OPEN WORKSHOP. They have also filled out a QUESTIONNAIRE for the evaluation of the trips.

PROFESSIONAL ARTICLES AND WORKBOOKS appear on the website at the bottom of the activities / training page at the articles / studies tab, and I will try to attach the questionnaires to the report.

 

Our goal is to engage Hungarian jugglers to join in the European bloodstream, which often can only happen through applications through the frequent lack of adequate financial background and confident language skills. As a result of the trip, however, their PROFESSIONAL, TECHNICAL and PEDAGOGICAL KNOWLEDGE has deepened, their LANGUAGE and SOCIAL competencies have evolved, which makes it easier for them to work on the market. Beneficiaries, besides their education practice, were invited by vocalists, professional conferences and workshops, disseminating their experiences, so that useful knowledge is also available to colleagues.

At the same time, MZSE's EDUCATION WORKING GROUP has also improved in its preparedness and its total competence.
