Charlie Cush


General Manger, Australian Contemporary Circus Company, Circa

Charlie Cush (Queensland, Australia) is currently the General Manger of Australian contemporary Circus company, Circa. Circa exists to create and present circus that moves the heart, the mind and the soul. We walk the tight-wire between great art and great business. To do this they combine the raw thrill of circus with the depth of contemporary arts practice. Circa approach every aspect of their business, organisation, and delivery with the same creativity as they apply to their art.

Charlie was previously the Senior Arts and Cultural advisor to Local Government in Queensland and also managed the arts and cultural portfolio for the City of Brisbane for 5 years, where he worked to develop Brisbane as a vibrant and creative city for its residents and visitors. Programs developed under Charlie's management used arts and cultural practices as engagement tools for developing communities, while providing opportunities for the arts and cultural sectors. Charlie has a background in education, performance and arts management and has recently completed a Master of Arts in Cultural Leadership.
