2024 CLOWN FACILITATOR TRAINING – EUROPE
A 2-YEAR COURSE from October 2024 – May 2026

This training provides a practical and experiential grounding in the facilitation process and reflects our approach and philosophy of teaching clowning.

Length of course

The course consists of 6 five-day residential modules. Arriving Tuesday afternoon, leaving Sunday afternoons.

Course structure

Each module addresses a different aspect of facilitation and clowning:

  • Warm-up and its function
  • Games
  • Structures of impros and how to read them
  • Guiding impros
  • Feedback
  • Group process and the facilitator’s role in the group
  • The clown archetype and its meaning

Who is this course for?

You will need to have done Clown 1, Clown 2 and Clown 3 as a minimum. Some experience of working with groups and a commitment to your own personal development is necessary.

This course is for people who either already work as clowns or who want to use clowning as a source of inspiration in their own professional field (such as teaching, artistic education, social work, health, and therapy). Priority for the training is given to those who have done the Nose to Nose training at level 1, 2 and 3… You can apply if you have only done level 1 as long as you commit to doing the other levels over the following 2 years. If you have trained with other schools with a similar approach to Nose to Nose you will need to do a course with us before applying and to ask for an interview with us.
