Research trip to South Korea



    Circostrada organised a research trip to South Korea from October 4-10, 2018, in partnership with and in the frame of the Seoul Street Arts Festival and PAMS - Performing Arts Market in Seoul.

    It was the occasion for the members to discover the local circus and street arts scene, to get a better grasp of its context, actors, specificities and challenges, to meet South Korean artists and to visit its main cultural venues.

    What was on the agenda during this one-week trip?

    • Seoul Street Arts Festival: the largest street arts festival in Korea, showcasing more than 50 high quality national and international companies performing across downtown Seoul. 
    • Performing Arts Market in Seoul (PAMS): a major international performing arts platform in Korea and the biggest one in Asia. 
    • Meeting with key local stakeholders to better understand the South Korean context, including members of the new CAN-Circus Arts Network.
    • Visits of some of Seoul's most recent and innovative cultural spaces, including the Seoul Street Arts Creation Centre.
