Circus SaferThroughout their careers, circus practitioners transition from one role to another. They navigate both informal and formal scenarios, taking up positions as educators, artists, or organisers; creating or performing, both on stage and behind the scenes. Ensuring safety in these transitions is crucial. How can we provide a safe environment and take care of ourselves and others?

From 10 to 12 April 2024, the conference ‘Circus – a safe(r) space for danger’ took place in Antwerp.

Over three days, 146 participants explored this question and the importance of technical, psychosocial and physical safety for circus professionals and practitioners. The event featured two keynote speakers, three panel discussions, one poster gallery walk and twelve workshops. Thiswebsite gathers all content created before, during, and after the conference. We invite visitors to discover the articles written in collaboration with Around About Circus and explore the various workshops that were held.
