In April we held two Circus Futures panel artform discussions with Directors from around the world, from the Canadian High Arctic to Brisbane, Australia (and next week, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Edinburgh and LA); two panel discussions exploring sector issues and themes; and introduced 15 featured creators. We have facilitated the first one-on-one consultation; we’ve had over 200 members of the circus community attend discussions; and reached over 6000 people though our Facebook posts.
If you have the means, please buy the team a Ko-Fi to support their hard work - We are an unfunded initiative, made possible by the volunteer efforts of the current staff. Donations during COVID go to the staff who are unwaged in any capacity.
