ARTCENA is the French National Centre for Circus Arts, Street Arts
and Theatre, funded by the French Ministry of Culture. It coordinates Circostrada Network and has a permanent seat on its Steering Committee. ARTCENA works towards its missions in three main
areas: sharing knowledge and resources through a digital platform; supporting professionals via mentoring and training; promoting and strengthening the circus, street arts and theatre fields by carrying out international development projects.
Since 2003, Circostrada Network has been working to develop and structure the fields of circus and street arts in Europe and beyond. With more than 100 members from over 35 countries, it helps building a sustainable future for these sectors by empowering cultural players through activities in observation and research, professional exchanges, advocacy, capacity-building and information.
