This afternoon, I met with the High Education coordinator to discuss the foundation degree and bachelor degree that is currently being delivered with Circus Space. Firstly, we took a tour of the Circus Space. More impressively, the Circus Space is situated in the old building of Shoreditch Electric Light. Circus Space has retained the features of the building and it looks amazing.
The coordinator talked about the professional development program, the support training space, studio hire and consultancy that is available for professional artists. The facilities they have is amazing.
Eventually, we sat down and talked about the higher education in circus arts. We spoke about accessibility for deaf artists, auditions to be part of the program and what happens after the degree. The discussion was useful for me and gave me an insight of what to expect.
I am still thinking about it and not entirely 100% on it yet. This is something I need to discuss with my partner.
