Creative Circus Friday Forum Speaker Series

Our ties to creative industries are evident in the caliber of exceptional talent who come and speak at Circus Forum. Typically held on Fridays in The Carol Vick Bynum Theatre, our forums are an important opportunity for our students to learn from current top players in their fields.

Exceptional students have an opportunity to have their books perused by some of the top talent who visit us. And everyone has a chance to listen and learn as our speakers tell us of their own war stories and lessons learned along the way in the life of a Creative.

These events are open to the public (mandatory for students, of course) so if you’re in the neighborhood, come by and enjoy our Creative Circus Friday Forum Speakers!

Guests, check in at the front desk.

*If you are interested in speaking, please contact Career Services Director, Hannah Heller.
