On April from 13 to 15 2016 in Paris, Circostrada Network, in partnership with La Villette, organised FRESH CIRCUS#3 - European Seminar for the Development of Circus Arts.

The third edition of this flagship event brought together 400 international professionals, artists and policy makers for a key focus on circus arts. Open panels, geographical round tables, thematic workshops and an artistic programme were on the agenda of
this 3-day seminar, which addressed the theme 'Moving borders'. The objective? To explore in all latitudes the geography
of circus arts to draw a picture of the development of contemporary circus across the globe. 

This publication delivers the dynamic conclusions of all the sessions and formulates a series of practical recommendations for all professionals to improve the structuring and recognition of the sector in Europe and beyond.
