Unique and memorable experiences that will make you laugh out loud and connect directly to the heart.
This is an opportunity to work with Clint Bolster, who's approach is underpinned by the assumption that everyone has something to offer and that laughter is a unique and powerful engager.
LAUGHTER connects directly to the heart...it celebrates the joy of human interaction - and the incredible power of how a simple act of kindness, and authentic connection, can transform a person's life - developing and strengthening inherent resilience. LAUGHTER conceals, gives permission to play, allows expression, liberates and reveals; and instills a sense of joy, vulnerability, physical discipline and freedom of expression in the participant. The opportunity to play, express, be physical, relate and discover in real time and space is a vital life skill.
These specifically tailored programs can culminate in:

We strongly believe access to live performing artists contributes greatly to social-emotional skills development; It builds resilience, compassion, understanding of diversity, empathy, focus, problem-solving and communication skills, a sense of community and well-being.
