How does humour and playfulness help us to address complex issues and emotions about the climate crisis?

What can the wisdom of the clown bring at this time? And how can clowning be used as a powerful tool in the process of change; transforming participants, audiences and in some cases the powers that be?

Drawing on her ongoing research into clowning, street spectacle and protest and off the back workshops and street actions at COP26, activist clown, director and TedEX speaker Robyn Hambrook will facilitate a playful, practical workshop that explores these methodologies for creative resistance. Leave with a new perspective and a new set of tools - and have a lot of fun along the way.
