The Circ-A association
CIRC-A was born in Barcelona, at the end of 2019, out of the need to find a meeting and creation space for artists and groups with the aim of generating artistic projects for social transformation. Its members have fifteen years of experience in the myriad of entertainment and street theater and circus animation. The association supports the projects of its members through the search for spaces for residences and micro-financing, assistance in creation, logistics and production of artistic projects that promote coexistence and social transformation of the neighborhood. We organize talks and debates to spread cultural information in the city, networks and job opportunities for artists.
It is linked to public and private entities in the neighborhood to work together on cultural initiatives and projects (Casal del Barrio Pozo de la higuera, Encircant el barri, La Oculta Association, Zirkolika Magazine, Papallona Circus Art Shop)
The association works with the objective of guaranteeing meetings and activities with partners with a perspective of gender diversity, anti-racism and ethnic-racial diversity through a declaration of principles guaranteeing the commitment of the association's management, and a signed declaration of the partners that comprise it, zero tolerance in relation to any conduct or attitude constituting sexual and/or racist harassment.
