Guerrilla Gardening for Clowns

Guerrilla Gardening for Clowns

The world of permaculture meets rebel clowning.

This is a two-day workshop where people can learn the ancient
art of clowning and methods of direct action in the context of
permaculture design.

Where and When
Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 March
TePooka, The Big Red Door, Lady Lawson Street, Edinburgh EH1
10am to 6pm

The intention is threefold.
1. Exploring ways to reclaim a sense of community and openness
with each other, fostering group intelligence.
2. Reclaiming our bodies, spontaneity and natural creativity
through clowning.
3. Reclaiming land on a local scale and beginning a community
garden somewhere in Edinburgh.

We will be working with games and exercises involving rebel
clowning as well as permaculture design and guerilla gardening.

Who is facilitating the workshop
I have facilitated some 30 or so workshops in clowning and
taken part in numerous workshops in fooling (which has given me
a wealth of experience working with people creatively in
groups). I have also taken part in a permaculture design

The workshop is run on a donations basis. Please donate what
you feel the cost of such a workshop would normally be -
obviously within the limits of what you feel you can afford.

If you are coming to the workshop, please email me on
kugi[AT] to let me know so I have some idea of the
number of people who will be turning up.

Also, please bring food to share for lunch.

Also, please invite your friends!

Looking forward to playing together.
