Finding your own personal inner clown can help you to access teaching and learning from a unique perspective. One’s inner clown is the non-judgemental, naïve, honest and open aspect of oneself. Inner clown work can bring us into dialogue with this aspect of ourselves helping to relate to our work, planning and activities in a different way. You may also want to use your clown in the classroom or on site of your activities for specific purposes/programs.
- Exercises will assist in ones’ ability to find the clown that is uniquely their own.
- Development of their character through exploratory exercises and scenario sketches will result in the creation of a unique performance to introduce and highlight the clowns that have emerged from the process.
- Ways of dialoguing with ones’ clown as a means to exploring program and activity planning will be shared.
