In 2008, Cirqueon became the umbrella organisation for contemporary circus in the Czech Republic. Its primary activities are aimed at supporting and advancing contemporary circus in the Czech Republic and disseminating information about current events in this field.
Since early 2010, it has had its own training centre, where it regularly offers courses in acrobatics and juggling for children, young people, and adults, and which also serves as a base where professional artists can engage in creative work.
Cirqueon also has a research, education and information centre with its own specialised literature and video library thematically focused on circus arts. In 2011, Cirqueon began to focus systematically on advancing social circus projects and is currently coordinating the development of a Czech-Slovak platform for the development of social circus.
Cirqueon offers casual training through afternoon courses, weekend intensive workshops, and international masterclasses within the framework of multiple European education projects. Generally this latter category concerns education for teachers and creative masterclasses for artists. An important goal of Cirqueon is also to work with young people, and to prepare talented individuals for study at professional circus schools abroad.
