     I have shared many posts about Clowns Without Borders, an incredible international organization that works with communities in traumatic situations. Today I want to introduce another circus organization working with refugees and others suffering from trauma, the Emergency Circus. Bernard De Koven of Deep Fun shares the story of their work on the Greek island of Lesbos with refugees from Syria, Lebanon, and other Middle Eastern nations. This is an important and inspirational account of their work there–text, images, and video. I will be posting more about Bernie De Koven in my work on the essential nature of play for human development.

     All the images on my site are from Clowns Without Borders.

Read…View…Listen…Reflect…Share Here, There, and Everywhere!

“Clay is a member of a troupe that goes clowning around the world, performing in what they call The Emergency Circus.”
