On Tues 23 Jan, a fire broke out at the Brisbane Circus Centre.

Home to Queensland's world class circus industry - the Brisbane Circus Centre is a place where the impossible becomes possible. Flipside has trained over 1 million people in circus arts since 1994 including artists who go onto vibrant careers in Cirque du Soleil and Circa.

Flipside Circus right now is facing financial hardship and an uncertain future. With the help of our community, staff and trainers we have adapted to deliver classes as best we can. But we still need your help.

Smoke from the fire coated our building and much of our equipment will require a significant clean-up. Most of the affected equipment is beyond repair and will need to be thrown out and replaced.

Please help us through this incredibly difficult time by making a donation. As an ACNC registered charity, every donation over $2 is tax-deductible. Every dollar donated goes towards securing Flipside's future.

PROGRESS REPORT

It’s been four weeks since a fire at the Brisbane Circus Centre turned an exciting day two of term into a scramble for the next step. With help from Circa, Vulcana, and Northshore we were back running classes two days later at The Shed, Northshore. With support from the Brisbane Powerhouse we moved to the Stores Building where we are still running classes, providing space for artists, and celebrating birthday parties.

Our fundraising efforts are ongoing. In the coming weeks we will be launching a campaign that gives our students the ability to raise funds for Flipside while having fun practicing circus skills. In the meantime, any donations are immensely appreciated and can be made here.

We are still working with contractors and builders and we are still not sure exactly when we’ll be able to return home to the Brisbane Circus Centre. To read about what's next for Flipside please see the Fire Appeal Progress Report.
