Conference ‘Circus – a safe(r) space for danger’, 10-12 April 2024

Antwerp (BEL)

Conference / Lecture

We invite you to exchange, inspire and be inspired by taking part in the conference ‘Circus – a safe(r) space for danger’, in Antwerp on 10-12 April 2024!

The conference is organized by MAD Festival, Circuscentrum and El Circo D’ell Fuego, in partnership with FEDEC, EYCO, Circostrada and Caravan Circus Network, with support of Flanders State of the Art.

Throughout their careers, circus practitioners move from one role to another. From informal to formal scenarios, taking up roles as educators, artists or organisers; creating or performing, both on-stage and behind the scenes. While moving between these worlds, safety is key. Because life in the circus is all about questioning boundaries, bending rules and changing perspectives, often while in close interaction with others.

How can we provide a safe environment and take care of ourselves and others? Join the conference on technical, physical and psycho-social safety within the circus sector.

The conference runs parallel to MAD festival (11-14 April 2024) and MAD convention (12-14 April 2024) in Antwerp (BEL).
