Care Clowning is for individuals, groups and families that want to be Joy Activists here in Southern Africa. We train you, support you and welcome you to the growing joy family. 15 hrs training & a 1hr commitment per week/month and you too could be ‘On the UP’

Training happens over a weekend or successive evenings & includes your first mentored visit to a hospital or home.
The training includes finding your “Inner and Outer Care Clown”. the Outer covers the CLOWN: includes your movements, body awareness, make-up, costumes, hygeiene etc and the exploration of your name & character
The inner – covers the CARE part of the care Clowning and involves practical exercises, with tools that develop the inner self and enhance play skills, adaptability & sensitivity; ALL designed to help you overcome FEAR & choose LOVE.
All Care Clowns are encouraged to make just 1 consistent weekly or bi-weekly visits to their chosen institution and share joy : a kind smile/ giggle/game/ joke, song & dance with the children or adults there for +- and hour.

Care Clowns are trained in groups, so together the group’s helps maintain the week visits. This way when 1 or 2 folk can’t make the visit – the consistency of the visits are still maintained and the children can rely on their weekly loving & JOYful time.

Training is available in Cape Town, Joburg and KZN and soon to be in Mpumalanga & Namibia. ‘The UP’ has grown to become a nationwide organisation, we say “YAY” to that.
