The next General Meeting will take place in Fossano, an Italian city located just an away from Turin in the Piemonte region, from June 28th till June 30th. It will occur in the frame of the 11th edition of Mirabilia International Circus & Performing Arts festival.

The festival (June 28th - July 2nd) will be the occasion to attend the performances of Italian and international contemporary circus artists, street artists and dancers. With over 80. 000 people, and almost 200 professionals attending the festival each year, Mirabilia focuses on emerging and affirmed creativity from Italy and Europe into a multidisciplinary stimulating experience. A unique opportunity to catch up with, or maybe for some, to discover emerging artists and companies, to witness innovative urban projects, dance in public space, and many other original performances.

During the General Meeting, Circostrada members will be introduced to the new network’s project for the next four years (2017-2021), co-financed by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, that is to say an exciting and important time for everyone, which is the result of a collective and productive work. It will also be the opportunity to discuss the current and upcoming activities of the 6 work groups of the network during joint sessions, and to attend professional workshops with local experts around the following themes: the use and interaction of digital tools as a means of improving cooperation processes, communication through audience participation, and integration and acceptance through performing arts.

In other words, it will be a privileged moment for the members to share, exchange and discover an exciting festival, all in a warm and friendly atmosphere!
