"EVERY WAY. This was echoed by another question in this section where people were asked to rank the importance of different aspects of the industry to the future of circus…and the respondents pretty much said that everything was “very important.” Community Building got the most “very important” votes with 428 (can you say ACE Educators Conference?), but Performance Opportunities came a close second with 410 (can you say CN-ICE?). While Research, News and Information got the lowest number of “very important” votes, it got the highest count of “somewhat important” votes (239). The truth is that our sector is really just emerging in a really new and exciting way, as a combination art-sport (spart?) with people engaging through education/fitness/art/social-awareness/academia and in so many other ways. There really are innumerable ways to engage with circus today."
