This guide offers the actors in the social circus field the keys to the study and validation of the effects of the circus on wellbeing. The guide also explains how to collect information on these effects by using surveys and interviews, and for processing the information and compiling an information package without major investments in research. Any circus performer can easily collect at least a minimal amount of feedback. trained researchers can be asked for assistance when necessary.
The purpose of studying the impact of circus is to collect information in order to develop circus activity and to explain the significance of circus to its organisers and purchasers, for example the municipal sector. Impact study hopes to find answers to the following questions: how does social circus promote wellbeing? Why should social circus be organised?
In social circus everyone gets to practice and perform tricks and stunts. the attention is directed towards controlling the body and the equipment, on balance and movement. the atmosphere in the circus is encouraging and mistakes are expected. Participation in group activities with others creates community spirit and gives participants the confidence to perform. Social circus has many wellbeing effects, and it is important to make them visible. This guide for conducting research on a social circus can be modified to collect impact data also on other services. [editor summary]
