Circostrada is a European platform for street arts and circus. It is an information exchange network comprising 30 organisations chosen for their expertise and knowledge and is based at Hors Les Murs in Paris. Meeting twice a year at an event hosted by one of the member organisations, Circostrada’s goal is to work on the development and infrastructure of street arts and circus throughout Europe. In April 2009, Crying Out Loud was chosen as the partner for the first meeting held in London. In 2010, Circostrada and Crying Out Loud jointly organized a seminar for European Arts Council Officers to introduce them to the circus and street arts sectors. Attendees participated in a day programme of talks and discussions and attended shows at the London International Mime Festival. Crying Out Loud regularly participates in the Circostrads’s quarterly meetings, seminars and discussions hosted at European festivals.
