No Clowning Around! Dof Provides Loan to Omnium Circus!

Omnium is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization that was founded in July 2020 with a mission to enrich empathy among all people through the shared positive experience provided by a fully diverse, inclusive, and accessible circus. Omnium believes itself to be the only performing arts organization in the world that focuses on full inclusion for performers, audiences, and staff. Full access and inclusion are built into each performance and include the use of American Sign Language (ASL), audio description, plain language, Spanish language, reduced sensory accommodations, calming areas, social stories, study guides and programs in braille.

In offering live performances, Omnium designs the experience to allow people of all abilities to experience the performance in whatever way works best for them. There will be unique adaptations for individuals that are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, low vision, on the Autism spectrum, neuro-diverse and English language learners.
