The #CircusVoices development scheme is an initiative to build a culture of critical discourse around circus arts, inspired by the Unpack The Arts programme, but focused on introducing critical vocabularies to the circus industry, rather than circus languages to existing arts journalists.

The first residency took place in 2016 during Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and in 2017 a curated group of artists were been brought together to continue the discussions at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

The most recent edition of the programme invited applications to join a larger group of diverse circus practitioners to explore varied strands of critical discourse during Circus City festival in Bristol.

Applications are now open to join us in Edinburgh from 9-15th August 2018. Email NICritics@mail.com for an application pack.
