The Network Charter on Ethics and Deontology for Educational and Artistic Directors of Circus Schools

In 2010, the European Federation of Professional Circus Schools (FEDEC) launched a reflection process and a network consultation about Educational and Artistic Directors’ skills.

This work led to MAILLONSa programme of workshops aimed at enhancing the skills of Educational and Artistic Directors of FEDEC schools, to be implemented from 2011 to 2013.

In 2011, Maillons’ workshops focused on the topic of “Ethics and Deontology in Education”, and developed a network Charter on Ethics and Deontology that has recently been published.

This common tool is the fruit of consultations carried out internally by FEDEC school directors with their educational teams, the sharing of their experiences in teaching circus arts and network discussions on ethical and deontological issues.

Coordinated by Marc Lévêque, associate expert on this theme, this first Charter on Ethics and Deontology consists of recommendations and non-binding principles, allowing each school to take up its content and breathe life into it through its educational project.
