Collaborating With The Community
The IJC, as a volunteers-based-convention, and the Israeli association for juggling and circus arts view the connection and the cooperation with the community and society in general
as a fundamental principal.
As a result of this principal, the IJC hosts each year several groups from disadvantaged communities.
If you want to take participate this year, great! we need your help making some juggling balls to give to all of the groups we will host. Those juggling balls are easily made from rice, plastic bag and baloons. make as many as you can and bring it with you to the convention. Here is a video made by Omer Lewy, Our community outreach manager, teaching how to do it yourself:
the video is in hebrew but it is easy to foloow up the process..(:
