  • Circus & street arts


The European landscape for circus and street arts has evolved substantially in the last fifteen years. Federations, trade unions and local networks have been formed in several countries to represent and defend these sectors.

The professional organisations listed here all work to improve recognition and understanding among policy officers and strategic advisers, and in doing so work towards the development of dedicated policies and support schemes for street arts and circus, advocating for better conditions for cultural workers from these fields.

Their activities are essential to promote improved infrastructure and recognition for artistic fields that continue to receive little support from public authorities and cultural institutions.

In this guide, Circostrada Network brings together an updated description of these different organisations active in 2015, their missions and their activities.
