En Piste wishes to offer the community another unique opportunity to meet, mobilize and reflect on its future.

In 2017, in order to document and bear witness to the state of circus arts in Canada, En Piste carried out a national survey reaching more than 500 participants. The alliance also prepared a brief, realized in the context of the Quebec government's cultural policy reforms. The result of these efforts was the master plan, 2017-2027: Cap sur nos territoires - Pour le développement national des arts du cirque.

Today, over two years after the start of the pandemic, where do we stand? What are the achievements we can build on? What are our new challenges? Have the players in the sector shifted? Can we define the circus’ current value chain? What are its strengths and weaknesses?

The AGM FORUM is a pivotal moment to discuss and define priorities for the next four years.

The objective is to present the results of recent consultations and to hear your thoughts, following these new consultations.

Our forum on the updated master plan will be followed by a series of conferences and workshops addressing the roles of digital technologies in circus today. Digital creation and discoverability will be explored through playful, participatory, and interactive workshops. These events will also allow participants to connect with one another while exploring promising digital initiatives. In light of the precariousness the field has been facing since the start of the pandemic, participation in this series will be free of charge.

All details on the Digital Event.


You are all invited to the 5@Cirque, during which you can attend the presentation of the first circus awards, in collaboration with the Conseil des arts de Montréal! Wine and appetizers will be served.
