Upcoming Clowning Courses & Labs
Oh wow! Lookie here. A new workshop!
Join professional Therapeutic Clowns, Ali Gordon and Alicia Gonzalez to explore the basics of therapeutic clowning.
What is a Therapeutic Clown?
The profession of Therapeutic Clowning is an arts‐based practice typically in healthcare settings with children, adults, or elders. It is designed to reduce stress, restore a sense of control and dignity, and celebrate the personhood of each individual regardless of their physical or cognitive limitations. In a healthcare context, this is the basis of person centred care, but for a clown, it is life!
While Therapeutic Clowns have a different purpose from clowns who perform in circuses and theatres, they still have much in common, particularly the way in which curiousity, presence and playfulness are central to their work.
What does it take to be a Therapeutic Clown?
Together we will workshop the skill set and knowledge that may be required of a Therapeutic Clown and the different contexts therapeutic clowning can be applied.
How can this benefit me?
In this workshop, you will learn an array of practical skills and exercises that will allow you to introduce laughter into your work, whatever that may be.
Over the weekend, we will take a deep and practical dive into and the potential application of clowning techniques in health, wellbeing and person centred care.
Who is this workshop for?
