We believe talent lives everywhere and deserves to be supported from the ground up. Our main purpose at CIRCA is to circulate ideas and life-changing opportunities in support of the wider public and creative community: we mobilise those who can help and circulate back to invest in the future of art and culture.
With the #CIRCAECONOMY initiative we strive to create win-win situations that serve all. The opportunity we create from this comes in different forms. From direct-to-creator cash grants to scholarships, and commissions – CIRCA is committed to breaking down barriers and exponentially increasing everyone’s chances of being seen and heard on a global platform.
“Goldsmiths Department of Art is delighted to be working with CIRCA – one of the most dynamic and innovative companies currently working in the field of contemporary art – to offer two new #CIRCAECONOMY scholarships to students on our MFA Curating and MA Art and Ecology courses, starting in the academic year 2022/23.”Professor Richard Noble, Head of the Department of Art at Goldsmiths
