Projects, Programmes and Progress.

Since 1999 TIN Arts have strived to create, innovate and problem-solve. Through the creation of great art we have reached far and wide to create a richer, more inclusive and more accessible society.

The Clown Squad

Born out of the Clown Doctors, the Clown Squad have a slightly different mission but they use the same method of clowning to engage and play with others through the arts to inspire, engage and have fun! They can even help tackle more serious issues – watch to find out more…

Performance: WIRED
