Laura Olgiati

Project Coordinator (Freelance)

Laura’s favourite holiday destination as a child was an old wooden caravan touring through Switzerland with a traditional circus. Caught by the circus virus, she trained as an acrobat in a youth circus school in Zurich (CH). Looking for a professional challenge in the sector, Laura worked for several artistic projects in Switzerland and Burkina Faso (West Africa) before coming to London in 2013 for a MA in Arts Management at Goldsmiths University. For a placement, she joined Crying Out Loud during her studies, coordinating our British Eccentricity! event in Amiens. Since then, she is part of the COL team as freelance project coordinator. In parallel, she is co-founder of the first contemporary circus festival in Switzerland and touring manager for a Swiss circus company.
