Sirkhane Social Circus School is in Mardin, Turkey, near the Syrian border. We offer circus and music workshops for children and young people all over the region, in schools and refugee camps. We bring circus and music to Syrian, Iraqi and Turkish local children and young people, using these joyful tools to offer them a better future.
In the past 3 years, more than 500 kids have benefited from our classes in Sirkhane, and more than 3000 youngsters took part in workshops all over Mardin region. Over 20.000 children attended the circus performances during our Circus Festival. 
We also offer free circus classes 5 days a week all year long, as well as intense summer and winter workshops, helping many new young circus artists to train and grow as professionals.
