Random Literature
The European Circus Association (ECA) was established to promote circus arts and culture, thereby protecting this important part of our shared cultural heritage. ECA believes that circus is universal and an ever changing form of arts which offers a broad variety of expression. We believe that circus is one of the most popular forms of live entertainment. Initiated by the European Circus Association, the European Parliament adopted a resolution in 2005 recognizing the circus as a part of Europe’s culture.

The European Circus Association expects its members to guarantee flawless husbandry for their charges and to observe certain standards when working with animals. It is an artistic choice by the circus directors whether or not they want to present animals in their shows. The European Circus Association fights for their right to make this choice.
