CIRCUS FUTURES - SUPPORTING AND CONNECTING CIRCUS ARTISTS
Circus Futures has been hosting a series of circus conversation activities during the Covid-19 lockdown period in 2020. This has been supported using public funding by Arts Council England and is Lottery Funded.
There are 27 podcasts by traditional and contemporary circus artists being released here. Transcripts of the podcasts in different languages are available.
Notes from the European Circus Conversations can be found here:
Circus Futures is delighted to be the UK & ROI Partner working with the circusnext project to launch a new cycle of identification and support of original and creative emerging circus creators. Circus Futures is a founding partner of circusnext and is a co-organiser. The circusnext PLaTFoRM 2019-2021 open call for projects is now closed. The Selection Week had been put on hold due to Covid-19 and was later rescheduled as a virtual selection week in May 2021. The Laureates selected will perform in person (subject to government restrictions) in Paris towards the end of 2021.
Circus Futures is a UK-based organisation that works on projects relating to talent development for circus artists. It was the UK & ROI Co-organiser for CircusNext, an initiative involving nine core organisations and one main coordinator, which was a four-year project (2013-2017) seeking to assist emerging circus artists across Europe. From 2018 – 2022 Circus Futures is working with EU partners on the CircusNext Platform which is the designated EU Platform for Circus.
