Circus WOW shares many values with International Women’s Day, which is held each year on 8th March. IWD celebrates and recognises the difference and achievements that women have made and continue to make, as well as drawing attention to the issues that women still face in our world. Over the years, Circus WOW has contributed to IWD events, even more so between 2017 and 2020.
Here WOWers welcomed IWD lunch attendees, performing a display of circus skills in an array of fabulous fun costumes at the WIN stadium. Our highlights were the performances of the Washerwomen’s, What’s Her Story? at Sage Hotel for VIEW’s 2017 IWD luncheon and again in 2018 at the WIN Stadium for the IWD Illawarra luncheon, and being a recipient of generous funding from IWD Illawarra towards our outreach programs. WOW’s 20th birthday show was planned to include IWD 2021 as a celebration of women and their achievements.
