Το Tsirko πάει στο Circostrada Network Meeting και Opening of Cirko Center στη Φιλανδία 4-7/5

Welcome letter

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is my privilege and pleasure to welcome you all to be part of the opening festival, seminar and meetings in the

new CIRKO Center - a dream you have heard me talking about for so long time. The process has taken over three

years and now it is about to be in the end, and as we can realize, at the same time, in the very beginning.

CIRKO will form a home base for the Finnish contemporary circus art: a rehearsal, residency and performing space

for professionals. Also, we offer office premises to companies Circo Aereo and Taikateatteri 13, the Finnish Youth

Circus Association, and on the top floor, to the info centre of the Finnish Circus Information Centre.

CIRKO´s doors will be open to many international projects and networks. That is why we are happy to welcome to

CIRKO´s opening the partners of Circostrada Network, New Nordic Circus Network, Jeunes talents cirque Europe,

Territoires du cirque and ONDA - together with our new friends from Canada and elsewhere.

As some of you know, the new director of the Finnish Circus Information Centre has now been selected. I´m happy to

inform you that Sari Lakso is now about to begin her important work. You will have many opportunities to meet Sari

during your stay.

On the behalf of the Finnish circus society I wish you all nice and warm days in Helsinki during the opening days and

nights of CIRKO Center.

Tomi Purovaara

Director

Welcome letter

Dear friends and colleagues,

We are very happy and proud to welcome you to the first ever Circostrada meeting and the historical inauguration of

the CirkoCenter in Helsinki!

During the next four days you have the possibility to meet colleagues, get to know nordic circus artists, experience

the CirkoCenter, it¹s facilities and the modern and dynamic finnish circus. And of course enjoy Helsinki itself and

the lovely springtime!

Cirko Festival offers contemporary circus from Finland, Sweden, UK and New Zealand and Nordic Circus Meeting Day

brings all the nordic partners to the meeting point. Possibility to meet Nordic Arts Councils officers highlights

possible future cooperation.

Finnish Circus is making history when Cirko-Center, a venue dedicated to circus opens on May 4th. This would not be

possible without people who love circus. The audience¹s increasingly positive attitude towards circus and the

improved status of the circus art has made it possible.

We take the opportunity here to thank our supporters, Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture and the Nordic

Councils of Ministers, for making the Nordic Circus Year 2011 a success and all the people along the way for making

the dream come true.

We wish you a pleasant stay and welcome you to the miracle of Finnish circus!

Warm regards,

Sari Lakso and Lotta Vaulo

Managing director Head of international affairs
