Mission, Vision, and Values

Our Mission

Circus Up uses circus arts to overcome social barriers and build community with people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.

Our vision

A world where inclusion is the model, access is the norm, and play, creativity, and diversity are celebrated.

OUR VALUES

COMMUNITY

We respect and honor our differences.

STRENGTHS-BASED APPROACH

We make a point to acknowledge and build upon strengths that already exist in our communities.

​​

SURPRISE

We entertain the possibility of surprising ourselves when it comes to our individual and group capabilities and talent!

DIVERSITY

We know that diversity in every form makes us stronger (and is what keeps things interesting!)

EQUITY & ACCESS

We believe we have a responsibility to make sure our programs are equitable and accessible for all.

JOY

We make time for creativity, fun, and laughter because these things bod us and significantly increase health and well-being.

EXPERTISE & SHARED POWER

We rely on circus pros and coaches to keep us safe in the air, and as a non-profit team of leaders, we practice sharing power and responsibility.

​​

THE BIG PICTURE

We know we have much to learn from circus since it asks performers (and audiences) to "look up!" as we hope, think, and dream together.
