Contemporary Circus Art

The Canada Council recognizes contemporary circus art as a distinct art form. Professional artists and arts organizations practicing contemporary circus art are eligible to apply for funding through grant programs offered by the Council’s Inter-Arts Office. The Canada Council defines contemporary circus art as a form of artistic expression that integrates the mastery of one or more circus techniques in an original and innovative artistic concept of this art form. The practice, discourse and works are aimed at the creative evolution of this art form.
