Flemish Centre for Circus Arts

Partner member

Circuscentrum is the official link between the Government of Flanders and the circus sector.

Through its activities and projects Circuscentrum aims to turn Flanders into a flourishing circus region, with wide cultural support and the best possible development opportunities.

The activities of Circuscentrum are built around five pillars:

Artistic support

Providing career support to Flemish circus artists – for new emerging talent and established performers alike. The keywords are creation, artistic advice, distribution and promotion.

Pedagogic support

Providing the necessary refresher training for teachers, artists and young artists. Monitor the artistic and educational value of the network of youth circuses.
