Reminder: Important circus census!

EU Circus Census. Be Counted In!

In 2018, did you work in or with the circus industry in an EU Member State in any role (employed or self-employed)? If so please accept this invitation to participate in the Circus Census. The Circus Census is being undertaken in close consultation with Panteia, an independent research company, as part of a Study of the Situation of Circus which is funded by The European Commission

Individuals Circus Census (adult professionals including artists, managers, technical crew, producers, venue, festival, training school and creation centre staff, teachers, funders, academics, costume and prop makers and so on):

Companies Circus Census (including venues, festivals, touring circuses and circus arts companies, creation and training centres, national associations and so on):

Individual country information is also being sought about funding opportunities for circus, work permit contacts, policies for use of animals in performance and the education of travelling children. More information in multiple languages can be found at

If you wish to share your opinion about access to Creative Europe funding for circus projects please do so here and this will be included in the Study: CircusCreativeEuropeSurvey

Your assistance in completing the Circus Census and circulating to contacts you have, including databases that you hold, is vital to ensuring a complete response. The Circus Census closes on 28th February 2019. The Study will be published later this year and used to advocate on behalf of circus at a European and individual Member State level. All information is provided anonymously.
