Clowns & Co

CLOWNS, ART WORKSHOPS AND OTHER ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN IN HOSPITALS, ORPHANAGES AND SHELTERS

Never underestimate the power of laughter.  Its healing properties have been scientifically documented to prove that it releases endorphins and boosts the immune system. Diffusing nervous energy, laughter acts as a safety value blowing off some of the steam of stress.

Laughter is and should be an integral part of any childhood but it can be easily depleted by illness and tragedy. Our agenda for China is to set up Magic Teams of mobile units to dispatch performers throughout the city and countryside ready to restore the joy and fun that sustains a child's spirit.   

Hospitals


Medical procedures and hospital stays are overwhelming at any age.  Factor in the childhood confusion of being separated from your family and friends and you'll recognize the need for a little positive intervention, which we provide with our clowns, artist and English teachers.

We aim to intervene positively into the medical process offered by physicians. Being sent from provinces all over China , far away from home, limited visiting hours make the interaction for the children even more significant.

When visitors are few and far away, our Magic Teams of clowns, artists and English teachers conquer the loneliness and boredom offering entertainment, origami and painting sessions, also playful English lessons. The language curriculum is structured on elements of play music, orchestrated by dedicated English teachers.

At the moment we have a weekly program in the Beijing Children's Hospital , with 750 beds one of the world largest and China's main children hospital, and a bi-monthly program at the Beijing University Hospital , a smaller institution with 4 wards and 132 beds. The clowns and artists perform are being placed each week in different wards, and we leave their placement entirely up to the medical staff of each hospital who know best where they are needed the most.
