RED NOSES is an artistic organization
                    bringing humor and laughter to people in need of joy! 

The Founders Vision

We believe in the beauty of human emotions and strive to help people to rediscover
moments of happiness, especially in times and places of crisis and hardship

We envision the creation of a healthier and more humane world by contributing to
the well-being of all human beings

With the art and philosophy of professional clowning we support the society in
reconnecting with joy, happiness and optimism

A healthy society knows how to laugh and play; people living in a healthy society
are connected to each other

RED NOSES is a global movement with a clear focus encouraging more joy and
happiness in the world


Mission Statement

The cheerful sound of children’s laughter ringing out with joy and a zest for life is a sure sign of hope all over the world. However, when laughter begins to wane, it shows that life is often at risk. Detrimental to the healing process, emotional and psychological stress can be the result of a serious illness, a lengthy hospital stay or even a painful therapy - and this has to be remedied.

Equipped with an abundance of humour, characteristic pranks, jokes and tricks RED NOSES clowndoctors take on this challenging task of conquering fear and gloominess. These masters of improvisation and spontaneous play provide a different kind of therapy. Visiting each patient directly at their bedside, they support the sick and suffering with invaluable good cheer and vitality, encouraging a profound key to regaining balance and being able to cope with the situation.

The mission of the charity foundation RED NOSES International is to build up, monitor and partly finance partner organisations in Central and Eastern Europe. In doing so RED NOSES simultaneously develops and maintains high ethical and artistic quality standards in all its clown programmes.

Although we have in the meantime extended our horizons and also now visit geriatric wards and rehabilitation centres, the original and still the main focus of our work is on chronically and acutely ill children in hospitals.
