VicHealth announces five new arts programs to get people moving.

Five arts and cultural organisations are set to get thousands of Victorians physically active through participating in arts activities.

VicHealth’s MOTION projects work in partnership with local communities to provide free, vibrant, and unique ways to get people moving more often, and to meet new people while having fun.

One of the chosen 2013 MOTION projects include is our very own Women’s Circus’ – Art of Play.

Parents and children across the Western Suburbs of Melbourne will be surprised and delighted when play and circus activities come to their local playgrounds, malls and streets, and these normally mundane places are transformed into circuses without a tent. The project is designed to reinvigorate public spaces, to entice people out to play and connect with one another and ultimately aims to inspire new ways to think about the way we use public spaces.
