Unpack the Arts

Unpack the Arts is a European project that provides residencies for cultural journalists in the context of twelve major festivals programming contemporary circus. The goal of the project is to facilitate the circulation of knowledge and experience, to develop the critical discourses of its participants, and to further the role of the media within the (circus) arts and contemporary society.

Cultural journalists, critics and chief editors from any form of media can apply for the project.

Crying Out Loud hosted Unpack the Arts at two festivals; the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013 and the London International Mime Festival in 2014.
