On September 8th Baltic – Nordic Circus Network and “Arts printing house” gathered press, circus professionals and policy makers from all around the Baltic – Nordic region to a seminar called “Baltic – Nordic region: impact of circus”. During the meeting Lotta Vaulo, Director of “CircusInfo” centre, introduced concept and main aims of Baltic – Nordic Circus Network, presented their field of work and stated that it is really important and efficient that every country represents diverse cultural background and different positions of circus in art society, because it gives a chance to see common issues from various points of view.
New circus weekend’16 will introduce not only spectacular performances but also other events, important for contemporary circus and other performing arts communities. On September 7th a meeting of Baltic – Nordic circus network will take place in the “Arts printing house”.
