During the three days of the conference we will have plenary sessions with some of the leading artists and experts in Healthcare Clowning as well as several parallel presentations, discussion sessions and workshops facilitated by healthcare clowning practitioners and other experts.

The conference programme is intended to reflect the great diversity in the Healthcare Clowning world and to stimulate discussions about its role inside and outside of the hospital, its diverse audiences, different formats and approaches. We are convinced that this conference can contribute to the professionalization of healthcare clowning and make this movement even stronger! Make sure to take advantage of the various networking spaces and engage with one another in this unique opportunity to meet colleagues from all over the world.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna!
