#CIRCAECONOMY

We believe talent lives everywhere and deserves to be supported from the ground up. The core purpose of CIRCA is to create life-changing opportunities for the creative community: we mobilise those who can help, and generate for those in need of support.

With the #CIRCAECONOMY 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 to scholarships, and curation to commissions – we are committed to breaking down barriers and exponentially increasing everyone’s chances of being seen and heard on a global platform.

Through print sales in our first year, the #CIRCAECONOMY was able to circulate £180,000 back into the community with original commissions, scholarships, donations and grants. Throughout 2022, we will continue to bring extraordinary opportunities to emerging voices in the creative community.
