We present the Mini Art Festival in Sofia every year as an International contemporary circus festival and a multi-platform for the performance and presentations of artists. 
Since 2017 the Mini Art Foundation have been developing social circus, and the general aim of this project is to establish a social circus center and deliver circus practice for everyone
and give new perspectives for circus pedagogy and empower the kids and youth in and around Sofia, Bulgaria. 

We work with the children and youth from various groups of social risk, people with disabilities / special needs and students. These people develop social skills, they find the ability to communicate, achieving movement, coordination and balance of one's own body through different circus disciplines in these projects. As their opportunities to become eligible members of society are narrow in Bulgaria the circus is a place for them to find talent and competence in themselves. 

In addition, we are popularizing the Unicycle sport. In spring 2018 we opened Sofia Unicycle Club and today it is now an attractive weekly activity for both kids and adults in Sofia.

Our slogan is the following: "CIRCUS is POWER"
