When the Clown Doctors do their rounds, young hospital patients have the chance to return to their childs' world of play and fantasy rather than the adult world of technology, procedures and seriousness.

Clown Doctors spread fun through the wards and corridors Wearing white medical coats with colourful appliques, and lots of large pockets spilling over with props, the Clown Doctors perform red-nose transplants, funny-bone checks and 'cat' scans.

Parodying medical procedures can help children feel less fear and experience less trauma. Attention can also be diverted during medical procedures. International research has shown that humour has both physiological and psychological benefits. The emphasis is on interaction rather than entertainment. The whole hospital benefits — patients, families and staff.

The Clown Doctors use their skills such as magic, balloon sculpting, storytelling and other clowning skills to treat children with doses of fun to help them deal with the range of emotions they may experience — fear, anxiety, loneliness, boredom.

The emphasis is on inter-action with the patients and their families, rather than entertainment. 'Clown rounds' benefit the whole hospital community.

Laughter is a 'wonder drug' that:
- combats stress
- reduces pain by releasing endorphins the body's natural painkiller
- has a positive effect on the cardiovascular & respiratory systems
- relaxes muscles
- boosts the immune system by increasing thelevel of T cells & lowering serum cortisol levels
- helps promote a positive outlook
- helps people cope with difficult situations
- helps creative decision making
- creates bonds between people

Profile:
Kickstart Arts is an independent arts company that grew from the Tasmanan Trades and Labor Council (TTLC) Arts Officer program.

We aim to challenge community members from all over Tasmania to get involved in contemporary art making that is ambitious socially as well as creatively. We are passionate about the power of art to transform our lives and about providing opportunities for people who exist on the margins – whether because of their low income, their race, culture or geography – to work creatively together.

Kickstart is achieving this through creating partnerships and producing community-focused arts projects which conceptually link art and cultural issues with the agendas of other sectors such as industry, welfare, health, education, tourism and science. We wish to apply the creative processes that artists practice to other paradigms in order to create shifts in people’s thinking about what is possible.
