En Piste, Canada’s professional association for circus arts, is currently creating a state-of-the-field report on circus arts presenting in Quebec. Producers and presenters are cordially invited to contribute to our process of documenting and assessing best practices for presenting international circus artists in Quebec through this study. We’d love to hear from presenters working outdoors, indoors, in school contexts, with multimedia, and in other ways about your thoughts on network structures, audience perception of circus, public and private support, etc. Together, we can share the richness of our knowledge as well as our distinct perspectives on our common challenges.

Moderated by: Christine Bouchard, executive director of En Piste
