Vision Let circus surprise you!

Founded in 2012 in Aix-en-Provence, the International Center for Arts in Motion is a composite structure dedicated to circus arts in Provence, which vocation is to make a large public discover the diversity and the richness of circus arts in a pluridisciplinary and innovative perspective. From the beginning, innovation is in the DNA of the institution. The CIAM actively fosters reflexion and creativity in circus arts and in the cultural world by organizing several workshops, conferences and meetings.

International Cooperation Projects

From June 27th to 29th 2018, the CIAM hosted a Circostrada event, CSLab#3. It allowed participants to disconnect and to challenge themselbes in a special Lab that brought them to think differently and to experiment with new tools.

Youth Circus Projects
Each year, more than 1.000 young people benefit from the CIAM’s teaching projects.

Social Circus Projects
Since 2013, the CIAM has a partnership with a psychiatric institution and 2 of the teachers are working with a group of autistic children in order to work on self confidence, confidence in the other and motor skills.
