Clowning Workshop

Join Brain Health Scientist, Senior Atlantic Fellow & Professor of Speech-Language Therapy, Lenisa Brandao for a virtual clowning workshop.

In this workshop video, you will be introduced to the basic communication principles practiced in clowning & be given playful communication exercises that you can do at home with friends and family.

This workshop is inspired by Lenisa’s research from  ‘The Playful Living Project’ which  helps people living with aphasia and dementia. She is currently focusing on understanding how the practice of clowning and playful activities can change societal perspectives and benefit the lives of older adults living with aphasia and dementia.
