The Associate Program offers artists the use of our circus centre in a process of purposeful and accidental collaboration. Recognising the creative process is rarely linear, artists can access in-kind support for their practice including: 

  • Hot desking 
  • Rehearsal space 
  • Advice, feedback & support – production, marketing, etc. 
  • Access to apparatus, retired props or other on-hand resources 
  • Staging a viewing & presentation support including access to our networks 
  • Something we haven’t thought of yet that will evolve through open dialogue 

Over 100 artists have been selected to be part of the Associate program.
