Government and Development Agencies

Vertical Circus sources its funding from individuals, businesses, governments and development grants.

In collaboration with Glebe Youth Service and Umbilico, Space for Movement, Vertical Circus received funding for "Climbing Higher with Stories" from the City of Sydney Community Grants Scheme in 2016.

In collaboration with the Kalakar Trust, New Delhi, Vertical Circus received funding from the Australian Governement through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's Australian International Cultural Council to deliver the very successful "Circus with Spice" project.


Vertical Circus in cooperation with YADEN East Africa and the Sarakasi Trust received funding from the Australian Government through the Australian High Commission, Nairobi for the “Pale Juu and Beyond Project”.

We are always seeking new avenues of government and development, educational or cultural arts funding grants.
