Baltic Nordic Circus Network (BNCN) is a collaborative network of 17 circus arts organisations in the Baltic and Nordic countries.

The network works to strengthen the regional collaboration and development of the circus sector. Alongside lobbying activity, meetings and seminars BNCN organises workshops for artists and industry professionals which focus on skills development, best practice, increased knowledge and cooperation as well as cultural and national identity.

Between 2017-19 BNCN is hosted by Manegen – the national organisation for circus, variety & street performance in Sweden. Members range from artists, companies, producers, creators and students from Sweden’s largest players such as Subtopia, Cirkus Cirkör and University for Dance and Circus including smaller companies and solo artists.

Manegen collects and represents circus, variety and street performance and improves professionals’ working terms and conditions.
