Clowns Without Border’s first project here was the initial phase of a multi-year expedition in Indonesia where the circus arts are used to empower and provide relief to those living in Indonesia and who have suffered as a result of numerous catastrophic natural disasters. We partnered with Hidung Merah Circus in Indonesia on a mission, “To provide an enrichment program for anaka-jalanan (street children) and children living in poverty, through the art of Circus. The circus training incorporates lessons of perseverance, self-esteem, communication and respect for all people. After the initial project was finished, lead artist Dan Roberts was compelled to stay in Indonesia and established his own nonprofit called The Red Nose Foundation or Hidung Merah. CWB-USA continues working with The Red Nose Foundation.
