    Island Circus Space‘s “Catalyst” show is coming up April 2-3 at the Metro Theatre. Juggling, ribbons, improve, acrobatics and more! We spoke about them last fall and we can’t wait to see this passion project come to life next week.

    There will be ex-Cirque du Soleil, Ecole National de Cirque graduates and many more talented performers. Island Circus Space is also working with local tech company, Limbic Media to make this show happen. A new piece of technology will be debuted at the show that they hope will bring an extra “wow” factor.

    Looking for a different kind of summer camp for your kids this year?

    Startup Skool is a community of creatives, trailblazers, visionaries, and most importantly, entrepreneurs. They are committed to educating youth on how to think with an entrepreneurial mindset, so that one day they can tackle our society’s most difficult social and environmental problems.

    Startup Skool was born from a set of experiments with elementary students in Victoria, BC. In order to test how youth would respond to the concept of entrepreneurship, a topic not currently studied in school, the organizers began by giving these classes a $100 micro-loan and asking them to come up with ideas on how to use that loan to make even more money which would then be donated to their charity of choice. The results were extraordinary. With businesses ranging from building bird houses to sell at a local market to selling green smoothies, these kids were able to turn that initial $100 investment into thousands of dollars for charity.

    Startup Skool is being offered the month of July at the University of Victoria, switching to Fort Tectoria on Fridays for “Pitch Fridays”.
