National Institute of Circus Arts

Ever dreamed of running away and joining the circus? If you want a taste of circus life before packing your bags, then the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) is the place to start. A training institute that is part of Swinburne University, it offers a bachelor degree in circus arts for those who want to make their career in the industry, but for those of us who just want to escape our desk jobs for a while, there are any number of short courses to choose from! Tumbling, hula hooping, trapeze, aerial silks – basically anything you’d expect to see in a circus!

The Canvas Factory

One of the fun parts of moving into a new apartment is having the freedom to decorate it and turn it into a home. Since moving to Melbourne, I haven’t yet done much interior styling besides matching the sofa to the carpet; and the sofa conveniently came with accent cushions, which makes the living room a lot more pulled together than I had planned! However, our white walls are still starkly bare – I had bought my fiancé a few pieces of AFL memorabilia but they’re still languishing at his mum’s place. So when The Canvas Factory offered me the opportunity to create my own piece of wall art, I couldn’t wait to give it a go!
