Why not give highwire walking a go?
Wires Crossed is an international community-based project from Galway Community Circus aimed at promoting physical and mental well-being, safe risk-taking and social inclusion through the art of funambulism (also known as highwire walking).
This ambitious project will culminate in 2020 with 400 participants of various ages, walks of life, cultures, nationalities and abilities participating in a world record spectacle crossing of the River Corrib and Claddagh Basin on high wires.
This weekend Galway Community Circus are hosting FREE Taster Workshops where you can try out the technique on slacklines between 30cm – 1.5m high.
Workshops are suitable for ages 10+ and there is no booking necessary (children aged 10 to 11 years must be accompanied by an adult).
Workshop 1: 11am to 1pm
Workshop 2: 2pm to 5pm
People of all ages and abilities are invited to get involved with the project and learn the art of wire walking, find out more on the Galway Community Circus website.
Wires Crossed – A Balancing Act for Europe is produced by Galway Community Circus in partnership with Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture and the European Funambulism Network.
