The EJA is a non-profit association for European jugglers. Its main goal is to promote juggling in Europe, especially by ensuring that, each year, a European Juggling Convention (EJC) takes place in a different European city or town.
The main purpose of the EJA is to maintain the continuity of the European Juggling Convention and to promote juggling. In order to do this, it supports the organisation of the EJCs in many ways: It provides information and experience from helping with privious EJCs. It runs a pre-registration system and promotes the EJCs in many European countries. It gives financial assistance to EJCs providing both a start-up loan and some financial guarantee. It may also give some financial assistance to individual projects. It works with the organisors of the EJCs.
People work with the EJA on a purely voluntary basis in order to promote the unique character of juggling in Europe and to keep the European Juggling Conventions from becoming too commercial.
