We take an open view in identifying those contributing to the development of circus media, and in practice and philosophy see a magazine not necessarily as a print publication, but as a curated space that encompasses reflection, commentary, news and critical debate. More broadly, we see that the purpose of a magazine is to draw connections – between one artwork and another, between artists and audiences, between people and vital information – and are committed to exploring how this role might play out within the framework of new and existing technologies.
As a network we share a sense of our projects as connected to the broader circus sector – a significant part of its strategic advocacy and development – as well as an open attitude that recognises the practical benefits of international collaboration and exchange. Internally, we want to broaden our professional horizons, to sharpen our working processes, and to share expertise to increase our resilience and adaptability within the changing media space; externally, we want to bring circus to wider audiences, to present the artform with the intelligence and mindfulness it deserves, and, in general, to play our part in pushing the sector forward.
