• Strategy and Report on Circus

    Arts Council England

    Following on from, and building on, an earlier snapshot survey this 2002 Arts Council England document formulates a strategy for supporting the development of England's nascent circus sector. The report gives an overview of circus' status within the funding system before 2002, and makes a number of key recommendations to improve access in the future by improving knowledge/expertise within ACE itself.
