Festival of contemporary circus



Being a part of it, in a more humane way

CIRCa does not forget the commitment of its volunteers, who have enabled the Festival to exist from the very beginning of its rich history.

We wish to encourage and develop a strong relationship with volunteers not only during the Festival for our logistical needs but also throughout the year to share this project together. To give people from the community the opportunity to be part of such a project contributes to bringing us together.

As with many big events, CIRCa Festival would be nothing without the support of nearly 200 volunteers working in different committees.

To take part in the organisation of the Festival means first and foremost to share similar values and to live a strong and humane experience.
