Talent Development and Promotion for UK and ROI Circus Artists

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 – 2020 Circus Futures is working with 17 EU partners on the CircusNext Platform which is the designated EU Platform for Circus.

This will see two “Open Calls” for applicants who are emerging contemporary circus companies based in the EU. Circus Futures represents the UK and ROI in the Platform. In addition to the activity with partners across the EU, within the same time-frame Circus Futures will run a range of talent development initiatives (residencies, mentoring packages, conferences and labs) in the UK.
