Big tent circuses that travel in Europe for centuries visiting hundred places each year, might get a specail support in Europe.
Interesting initiative has been launched in Europe by lawmaker, the idea is to provide support and award sircuses that follow and abide best practises. Hungarian MEP (Ujhelyi Istvan) said that circuses are part of European history and support provided by EU will basically save them from extinction. Circuses need us, he noticed.
Some circuses perform over 250 years, at the moment three European circuses received reward last Friday at the European Parliament at the ceremony. These circuses are: Hungarian, Finnish and Swiss
Three circuses from Finland (Circus Finlandia), Hungary (National circus) and Switzerland (Knie) were rewarded this Friday at a ceremony held at the European Parliament. Welfare of animals, tax compliance and staff protection among the most imprtant criterias for support. Currently among 50 circuses that tour in Europe, only six have received this label.
Unique and at some point crazy Festival held every summer in the middle of nowhere - in Nevada desert, but it is worth visiting! Festival held for 9 days with over 70 thousand visitors every year. Most visitors coming with their unique costumes, music shows and acts, some circus staff, artistic installations, so party goes on for 9 days.
Basically speaking it is not really a festival it is global movement with principles and ideas as you can read on official website HERE, and to fully understand the concept you should visit it yourself. Some of these principles are as following:no money at the festival, anyone can become a part of Burning Man, festival committed to leaving no physical trace of activities wherever they gather. Isn't it great, right?
Burning Man Project is a non-profit organization this year 2019 festival was held from August 25 until Sept.2
