transitions: professional development

Offering masterclasses, a new professional development micro fund aimed at professional circus practitioners and access to mentoring

professional development masterclasses 

Delivered in partnership with Circomedia and National Centre for Circus Arts, this programme of masterclasses will cover a variety of business focused areas of practice. 

Masterclasses are open to all UK circus professionals and cost £15 for to attend for non Welsh-based practitioners. 

Thanks to the support of the Arts Council of Wales, Welsh-based practitioners can attend sessions based in Wales for free and can apply to NoFit State for support to attend sessions based in England if needed. 


Professional development micro fund 

To support the continuing professional development of circus professionals with a strong link to Wales through providing flexible and targeted financial support. 

The micro fund, will cover the direct costs that large funders are unable to support.  

The next deadlines for applications are:

Tues 23 July

Tues 20 Aug

Please note: There has been a slight change in how the micro fund is administered. The micro fund will now directly pay for items and support such as (but not limited to) training, fees, and space hire. If successful you must be able to liaise directly with the NoFit State team to arrange details of payment.
