Gesundheit! Institute Global Outreach is pleased to invite you to join 33rd Annual Russia Clown Tour with Patch Adams. This two-week adventure will take you to Moscow and St. Petersburg to clown in hospitals, orphanages, nursing homes, and everywhere else we go. No experience required!
This amazing trip is filled with participants from all walks of life. Our clown family will assemble from many corners of the globe, across generations and with all levels of experience to explore and exchange healing, playfulness, love, performance, community and culture. We are excited that you are considering joining us!
Our arrival is eagerly awaited by a host of Russian friends who love and care for us as family. Many of our local friends and volunteers are connected to the clown tour through Maria’s Children, a Moscow based organization serving orphans and children with special needs through art and advocacy. The Maria’s Children community has been part of the Russia Clown Tour for more than 20 years and is a fundamental part of the tour experience.
The daily itinerary is made by our Russia team. In addition to clowning in different types of institutions, we will have many clowning opportunities on the streets, in restaurants and everywhere we go in Russia. There will be some site seeing and cultural opportunities, some free time, and special dinner parties and events in the evenings. We usually travel everywhere together on a bus, occasionally however, we will take taxis or travel by metro.
If we had typical days, they might look like this:
