Circostrada Network has established several thematic working groups to develop strategies on issues related to the street arts and / or circus. We provide evolving notes on a subject, collecting existing information and producing recommendations to local, national and European institutions, as well as to the civil society. These working groups gather professional from Europe and are animated by Circostrada Network’s coordinator and members: they are part of the implementation of the 2011-2013 strategy and activity plan.
The working group Creativity & Creation is one out of three groups which have been created in the Access to Culture Platform. The working group advocates for the best conditions for artistic creation, to ensure access to the creative process for all, and to explore the creativity of the arts sector within the wider field of ‘creativity and innovation’.
This working group reunites secretary generals of ‘organisations active at European level in the field of Culture’ in order to exchange on daily work and practice.
The working group Public Policy Makers (Arts Councils Officers) consists of European cultural representatives, i.e. officers from regional and national institutions, who meet up regularly in order to exchange on support schemes and cultural policies within the European Union.
After the first edition of the Street Arts Winter Academy, Circostrada Network proposed to its partner organizations, as well as participants, to create a working group on the education and training in the street arts.
This working group aims to discuss the space for circus arts and the long-lasting legacy for the field within the European Capitals of Culture programme.
Circostrada Network designed the pilote programme ’ETC – Explore Third Countries’ which aims to make the artistic landscape of other continents more accessible and to encourage cooperation with non-Euopean countries.
