Illustration for an article in Circusmagazine about circus behind bars. Prisoners are given the opportunity to take circus lessons. The re-integration of prisoners is a difficult matter. Two years ago, the prison in Leuven started with a weekly circus lesson. Prisoners can learn to trust each other. They can also get rid of their stress by learning to juggle. It is a wonderful opportunity to prepare prisoners for their return to society.
