Art in the Urban Space: Contemporary Creation as a Tool
Since 2003, Stéphane Simonin has been Director of HorsLesMurs, the French national resource centre for the circus and street arts. HorsLesMurs is one of four French resources entirely dedicated to the performing arts (along with the National Theatre Centre, the National Dance Centre and the Information and Resource Centre for Contemporary Music). In 2003, HorsLesMurs created Circostrada Network, which includes 32 partners from throughout Europe. The Circostrada Network is a platform for information, research and professional exchange. The Network contributes to the development and structuring of the street and circus arts on the European level.
