More about Baltic Circle

Baltic Circle believes in the aesthetic and affective powers of the arts, and in the potential of social and political agency of performance.

Baltic Circle is based on a firm belief in the opportunities of arts to bring people together and to participate in societal change. Art can grant a space to imagine what does not yet exist, to re-organize our way of understanding reality, and to find forms to share it.

The festival’s cornerstone is a trust in artists, partners and colleagues alike, as well as a bold dialogue with different realities. Baltic Circle highlights communality, collaboration and commitment as key elements in building a festival, and aims to encourage equity, social and ecological sustainability, solidarity and gender equality.
