How we got here
Debby and her colleague Andrea Ousley establish a circus space at the Flemington Community Centre
Founder and Director Debby Maziarz resigns and new Executive Director Lena Cirillo is appointed.
Steph Urruty steps down, having seen the organisation going from strength to strength. Lena Cirillo leads Westside Circus’ relocation to its current home in Brunswick.
Westside settles into its new home and contemplates its future. Lena Cirillo leaves to have a baby.
New CEO Simon Clarke takes over and is joined by Artistic Director Sue Broadway. The troupe is re-established and performs at Festivals all over Melbourne, and many Westside participants – parents and kids – appear as deamons at the opening procession of the Ring Festival.
The Westside community will continue to offer opportunities to young people and their families, contributing to the health of the community, youth development and the growth of Circus Arts.
