Circostrada Network launches Bounce – a new mentoring programme for contemporary circus and outdoor arts workers.

Bounce is a mentoring programme dedicated to providing tools, connections, knowledge and resources to the next generation of contemporary circus and outdoor arts workers. It proposes skills for future steps, giving a space for participants to explore creative, relational, and economic potential in an international context and deepen their reflection on their working environment through the prism of Circostrada’s annual red threads.


  • An individual 16-hour tailor-made programme with a facilitator who will help structure the participants’ individual career plans;
  • A collective reflection on the transformation of the participants’ work and professional environment guided by experts and connected to Circostrada’s annual red thread  “Living body/ies”. Participants will reflect on this topic with researchers, thinkers, and workers from the ecological field, encouraging the opening of their own professional practice to sustainability and ecology.


We invite you to read the eligibility criteria and the modalities for applying carefully before filling the online form.
