It was truly a privilege for RED NOSES to host this unique gathering, one of the largest ever of its kind - 150 healthcare clowning organizations from 50 different countries, 400 participants, and infinite laughter and know-how transfer.
Thank you to everyone who has made this event possible, and thank you for continuing to spread the art of clowning and the power of humour and laughter throughout the world!

Dozens of parallel sessions and three plenary sessions address the four main conference themes!
Central topics include the art and professionalization of Healthcare Clowning, its role in society, its scientific foundations, as well as the responses of the sector to current global challenges.

Two evening events are accompanying the conference. April 4th will feature a show starring clowns coming from all corners of the earth. For more information see "The Really Awesome Clown Cabaret".
The second evening, April 5th, will be an “imperial” dinner at the Viennese Rathaus (an additional fee is required to attend). During the dinner, clown organisations from all over the world can show themselves in a playful “imperial” way (registration is needed to participate).
