CREA | created by Colombian migrants to Perth. The organisation sees clowning as a method for sparking joy, social connection, and mental health support. Their workshops are aimed towards those who may be experiencing emotional or financial hardship and are unable to access social safety nets like Medicare, mental health support and income support.

Their Dream Plan Do project, called Migration of Me were a series of workshops designed to guide participants through aspects of artistic expression in an effort to encourage them to utilise this tool to help them cope with life’s challenges. Participants were encouraged to develop their own clown persona as well, giving an outlet to their personal creative thoughts and ideas.
