FIA Survey on Circus Artists

Following up on Motion 11 of the 21st FIA Congress about circus performers, approved in São Paulo, in 2016, the FIA Secretariat has decided to conduct an international survey of its affiliates to collect data on working conditions in the circus industry, whether traditional or contemporary, itinerant or permanent.

This 51 questions survey, drafted with the support of FIA working group on circus, covers many issues: from health and safety to education and training and mobility and touring.

The questionnaire is available in 5 languages and should be answered online. FIA affiliates have received an email with the links to the different language versions of the survey.

Based on the survey results, FIA will develop and defend recommendations and best practices to help its affiliates offer circus performers balanced and fair working conditions.

FIA members have until September 9 to answer the survey.
