Dear Bristol friends and colleagues,
It has taken me a little while to write this. Yes, I’m leaving Circus City Festival.
I have loved working in our great city the last 10 years, but it’s time to move on to European pastures new.
The UK voted Brexit and unfortunately that makes life quite difficult for some of us.
I’ve been Co-Director together with Kate the last 5 years and it’s really been an absolute pleasure. What Circus City has achieved with the support of funders, partners, artists, colleagues, volunteers and audiences in a very short amount of time is truly remarkable. Thank you for this vote of confidence!
The spirit of can do and collectivity of Bristol is rare and beautiful.
As much as Brexit is quite depressing not all stories end in tears. I’m currently working with two international networks; being Coordinator of Baltic Nordic Circus Network (BNCN) and Partnership Manager for Trans Europe Halles (TEH). So keep in touch!
See you on the continent!
Lina B. Frank
Co-Founder of Circus City
